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.
In some areas of the world like Ethiopia, Hawaii and others, Peaberry coffee occurs in about 5% of the crops. In this 5%, a single bean gets fertilized in the cherry instead of 2. This yields a smaller, oval bean with a cleft in it.
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. 454g (1 lb)
