An Interesting little Bean
What makes the peaberry so special?
Normally the coffee cherry contains 2 seeds that develop a flatten side as they grow facing each other. Sometimes only one of the seeds develops with nothing to flatten it. This oval shaped bean is known as peaberry. Only a small amount of all coffee develops with this characteristic and as a result the peaberry needs to be hand sorting after picking and specially treated adding to its value and rarity.
Our Tanzania peaberry comes from the Mbeya region in southern Tanzania border with Zambia.
This fully washed peaberry has toasty, malty notes and a balanced citrus acidity with a smooth cocoa finish.
