We are excited to introduce this new Tanzania peaberry offering which is super fruity, juicy, and complex with tasting notes of cherry popsicle, Mirabelle plum, pomegranate, and honey with just a touch of sweet mint. It is delicious and reflective of the strides that Tanzania has been taking in recent years to improve their coffee quality. In the past, Tanzanian smallholder farmers in the Mbeya region would typically process their coffee at home with a depulping style similar to that of Indonesia’s wet hulling process. Unfortunately, this approach led to rapidly aging coffees and unfavorable flavor profiles. Thankfully, however, Tanzanian coffee producers have embraced innovation in recent years and transitioned to practices that mirror coffee-producing countries like Kenya and Ethiopia, utilizing Penagos ecopulpers and meticulously maintained clean washing channels. The result has been a considerable uptick in the amount of specialty coffee coming out of Tanzania and more roasters like ourselves excited to carry and introduce coffees from Tanzania. This particular lot is a peaberry, meaning that rather than two flat sided beans growing in each coffee cherry there is just one round seed. This can lead to a favorable lot of coffee as all those sugars in the coffee cherry are focused on just that one dense little seed. It’s delicious!
