This coffee has a medium roast profile and flavor notes of pineapple, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Peaberry coffee is one of Tanzania’s specialties, and demand for the elusive mutation is high, especially Peaberry coffees from Kilimanjaro.
A peaberry is a natural mutation of the coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but a funny thing happens in about 5% of the world's coffee, and a bean is born an only child. The peaberry beans get kind of spoiled by not having to share with anybody else. They tend to be smaller, denser, and taste noticeably sweeter and more flavorful than standard-issue beans.
