  • Tanzanian Peaberry

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2003
Origin: Southern slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, northern Tanzania Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Magnificent cup when hot: powerfully but sweetly acidy, resonating with complex chocolate nuance from aroma through finish. The acidity turns rather bitter and the profile simplifies as the cup cools.

Notes: Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different cup from normal beans from the same crop - often, though not always, more acidy and lighter bodied. Over the past three decades Neighbors Coffee has evolved from office coffee service to major regional wholesale specialty roaster offering an impressive range of single-origin and blended coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Fast coffee drinkers. When hot, a splendid breakfast cup, simultaneously bracing and seductive.


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.
