Tanzania Peaberry // 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. Gentle acidity, with notes of raspberry jam. Light roast.
I've been buying five pound bags of this from Pike Creek for a few years now. It's always consistent! Which is remarkable considering the variables of wind, rain, sun, shade, shipping, packaging and roasting before it turns in to coffee in my kitchen. It's a testament to their ability as Roasters. Before settling in on this light roast I typically bought 10 oz bags online from Go Coffee Go... A large range of national Roasters, beans and roast profiles. Eventually I settled on this local Roaster because I like my espresso made from light roast and I especially like supporting a local Roaster.
We both enjoyed this one and will likely reorder in the future.
Perfect morning coffee -- smooth and never bitter. We won't let ourselves run out.
Tastes great and the beans grind easily in our hand grinder on our boat.
