Our Tanzania single origin is a Peaberry Lot. Peaberries are a coffee containing one rounded seed instead of the usual two. They are named after their appearance, which is small and highly round like a pea. Such beans are esteemed for their unique flavor.
This coffee is a blend of peaberries from smallholder farmers from various villages and washing stations in Tanzania’s southern highlands. Most farmers in this region grow a few different cultivars, including N 39 and KP 423, two Tanzania-specific varieties.
