Tanzania Peaberry Nitin Estate // Light Roast
Peaberries (named this because the green coffee beans resemble a little pea) result when the coffee fruit develops one oval bean instead of the usual pair of flat-sided beans...yielding little egg-shaped beans.
We are currently sourcing our Tanzania from the Nitin Estate until our usual cooperative-farm Tanzania is available again. This estate lot of Tanzania is almost identical to our usual Tanzania, with notes of stone fruit, dried fig, and red wine.
I am always on the lookout for a light roast coffee with excellent flavor and a lower acid content and the Tanzanian Peaberry from Pike Creek is perfect. I love to make it alone or mix it with a flavored coffee to change it up. Either way my morning starts off right!
African coffees are my favourite. Any memory I have of Tanzanian Peaberry is one of the most flavorful coffees: this selection slaked my desire for just such a brew. I was tempted on many occasions to try this offering from Pike Creek Coffee Roasters, and I am elated that I did. It was one of my most satisfying surprises. I love light roasts, even as light as they go, for the lighter the roast, the more I taste the character of the coffee variety. Well done on this roast, Pike Creek Coffee team! I will not hesitate to reorder this Tanzanian Peaberry coffee again and again.
So aromatic it brightens your day
I've had Tanzanian Peaberry from multiple sources and yours is every bit as good - plus you're only 15 miles away and that feels like buying locally.
