About

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.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Tanzania

The landscape of the Mbeya Region in Tanzania is dynamic, with rolling mountain peaks and valleys galore. This is typical of coffee-producing countries, but not every origin is lucky enough to have their own namesake volcanic mountain range, let alone several other volcanoes nearby. Coffee plants thrive in these conditions. The loftier soil is great for prime water retention—it prevents flooding, keeping enough water to also stave off drought. It’s also jam-packed with nutrients.
