Peaberries are a little smaller than regular coffee beans, with a round-ish shape. It seems that they bring a little more intensity of flavour to the cup. You will experience a hint of sweet-tart blackberry, nice sweetness, a port wine body, and a subtle cocoa note in the finish.
This coffee is the produce of many small farms in the southern highlands around Songea. Typical of small farmers, daily picks are brought to the local washing station for sorting, grading and drying. Most small farmers do not have the resources to process or dry the coffee on their own farm. For this reason, we call these types of coffee a regional blend, and include it in our Single Origin series.
Coffee In Tanzania
Tanzania stuns with fascinating wildlife, cultural abundance and natural superlatives ranging from a spectacular coastline and the Serengeti savannah to the snow-peaked Kilimanjaro.
Ever since the early 1900s, Tanzania has been keeping an eye on preserving its natural beauty. Today, about one third of the country‘s territory are official national parks or conservation areas. Amidst this scenic diversity, some of the finest African coffees with complex cups and lively acidity are found here.
Arabica coffee makes up the bulk of Tanzania‘s coffee production and is mostly produced on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro in the north, and in the southern highlands of Mbeya and Ruvuma. There, coffee trees are commonly inter-cropped with banana trees, wrapping the land in shades of lush green.
