  • Tanzania Peaberry

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2007
Origin: Mt. Kilimanjaro region, northern Tanzania Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Deep, smoky, sweet-toned aroma with cedar and orange tones and an herby note. In the cup medium-bodied with a tickle of acidity, crisply sweet, gently smoky, with continued deep-toned orange or perhaps tangerine tones. The finish continues sweetly roasty and free of astringency.

Notes: Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading. Tanzania coffee from the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro is often marketed under the name of the largest town in the region, Moshi. Texas Roast is an in-store coffee roaster that specializes in moderately dark-roasted fine coffees and, above all, in offering them fresh, under the motto "Wake Up Strong and Free."

Who Should Drink It: A nicely balanced, discreetly dark-roasted coffee with solid sweetness and no astringency.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
