About the bean

Tanzania's premium beans, grown on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro near the Kenyan border, produce an unusually rich coffee with a light, winey acidity and medium body. The peaberry, which makes up only 5% of Tanzanian coffee harvests, occurs when the coffee fruit develops a single oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. The round peaberries are then separated from the flatter beans in the same crop to achieve this gourmet coffee.

Peaberry-grade coffee is prized by coffee connoisseurs for the uniform roasts they produce.

According to mythology, the peaberry is male, and is often associated with virility.

Roasting recommendation: Roast darker, to capitalize on this bean's intense flavour. Note: This bean requires much less roasting time than others to reach its rich darkness.
