Behind the Cup
Cultivated on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro near the Kenyan border, the Tanzania Peaberry possesses many of the qualities that characterizes Kenyan coffees, only much lighter in acidity. Tanzania produces arabicas that are considered as some of the best Africa has to offer and the Tanzania Peaberry is in a class of its own, as are all African coffees.
Did you know? Peaberry beans are very rare: we estimate that they account for about 5% to 10% of the worlds’ crops. A natural mutation happens inside the coffee cherry, where a single bean gets fertilized instead of two, which would yields a bigger, oval bean with a cleft in it.
