In the heart of eastern Africa lies Mount Kilimanjaro which, at 19,330 feet, is the highest peak in Africa. In the lower slopes of this dormant volcano lies the perfectly fertile soil to grow some of the finest coffee in the world. If you are a fan of Kenyan coffee, you'll love Tanzania Peaberry as this coffee is grown near the Kenyan border but has less acidity.
Regular coffee beans grow in pairs, two fruits to a husk. When harvested, they split and look rather like a peanut. Peaberry coffee beans actually a natural mutation of regular coffee beans. Normally coffee has a split bean growth. Peaberries are round and seamed down the center, but don't split all the way through. They are smaller, and rounder. They have a richer flavor than their oval- shaped counterpart rendering a sweeter and more intensely flavorful cup of coffee with full body and esteemed aroma. Peaberry coffee is rare; only 3 to 5% of all coffee develops with this characteristic. As a result, Peaberry coffee beans must be hand-sorted from the rest.
