J. Martinez Tanzania Kilimanjaro Peaberry Coffee is hand-selected from wet-processed Tanzanian coffee grown in the rich volcanic soils in the mountainous surroundings of Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro. Only a small percentage of Tanzanian coffee is peaberry.
Most coffee comes from twin flat beans grown within a cherry; however, when there is a lack of Boron in the soil, only one bean will form called a peaberry for its rounded shape that many consider to have a more concentrated taste. Peaberries are also reputed to roast more evenly than the more common flat berries, due to their rounder shape,yet this is not its only distinct feature.
Harvested at the base of Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzanian Peaberry has less acidity than most East African coffees. The fertile volcanic soil is ideal for superior beans and the result is a coffee that possesses a roundness swirling with slight wine and fruit flavors.
Though fruity in taste, Peaberry is hardly light and fluffy. Instead, it has the heavy body of a rich liqueur. This whole bean coffee comes in a 1 lb. bag packaged in a gift box and is available in a medium roast.
