" Profile: Floral jasmine aroma, bright medium-bodied flavor with hints of black currant and a chocolaty finish.
Place: Northern Tanzania, East of Lake Victoria, and just South of the border with Kenya. The best coffees in Tanzania are from the region around the city of Arusha, Mt. Meru and its foothills, and Northwest to the Serengeti. Due to the low instance of peaberries (around 5%) our coffee is supplied from two Estates, Edelweiss and Finagro. These farms are located near the famous Ngorongoro crater in the Rift Valley region.
People: The Maasai are the most populous and influential tribe in the region. They are a semi-nomadic people whose range extends from Arusha Northwest to the Serengeti and well into Southern Kenya. In addition to the Maasai people, several other indigenous tribes, immigrants, and employees of foreign interests populate this area. Because of the natural wonders including several prominent parks and preserves in the region, it is a popular tourist destination. Swahili and English are the most commonly spoken languages in addition to several local tribal languages.
Process: Tanzania Peaberry is a hand-selected, pulped, and fully washed coffee. It is dried on wooden tables with a screened bottom to allow good air circulation at the time of drying. Separating the peaberries from the rest of the coffee beans requires the use of special screens and adds time and expense to the grading process. The resulting peaberry coffee is very dense and uniform, resulting in a very focused and consistent flavor.
Pairing: Oranges, fruit salad or honey raisin bran muffin"
