Tanzania Peaberry coffee is a rare African coffee varietal grown in the Mbeya Region of Southwestern Tanzania. These wonderfully smooth and full-bodied Tanzania Peaberry coffee beans are lightly roasted, fairly rich in flavor and characterized by notes of lemon, peach and black tea. The distinct aromatics, defining fruity flavor, medium acidity and clean, lively finish of this Tanzanian coffee are all perfectly paired without being overpowering.
The Mbeya region is responsible for producing the largest amount of Tanzanian Peaberry coffee in Tanzania. Only 10% of the world's coffee develops a peaberry characteristic - which is easily recognized by the smaller and rounder bean size.
This specific type of arabica coffee is not native to Tanzania and was brought to the country by missionaries in the late 19th century. Production of Tanzanian Peaberry coffee beans is often split between smallholder home processors, smallholder processors at central pulperies, and estate grown coffees.
