Tanzanian North Highlands Peaberry
|Cupping Notes||Mildly Complex, Grapefruit, Dark Chocolate|
|Country of Origin||Tanzania|
Coffee production is the leading industry in Tanzania. This coffee competes against two of the most sought after origins in the specialty coffee world; Kenya and Ethiopia. Like it’s African neighbors, Tanzanian coffee has distinct flavors profiles that differ from the others. What tends to stand out more than the disctinctive flavors is the peaberry typical of Tanzanian coffees. Like it’s neighbor Kenya, Tanzania has a grading system for bean size that includes AA, which is typically top-lot. Tanzania, however, produces a great deal of peaberry grade coffee. Coffee usually has two beans in each cherry, hence the flat side of the bean. The peaberry, however, grows only one bean, leading to the claim that the peaberry has a more intense flavor than regular beans.
Tanzania Peaberry tends toward a cedar-smoke, and bright fruit flavor profile. A slightly heavier body than other African coffees, Tanzania is sweet and breakfast tea-like in body.
