Peaberry coffees are much rarer and have more flavor the normal coffees due the coffee cherry only producing one bean opposed to two. We source this coffee from the Mimba Estate, located in Mbozi, Mbeya in Southwest Tanzania, was established in 1995 by Joseph Meila, a Swiss immigrant who arrived in Tanzania almost a decade earlier. Joseph initially planted about 100 hectares of Bourbon with some Kent on the land and has, over the past three decades, expanded production to cover the full 160 hectares of the farm. During harvest Mr. Joseph employs over 150 men and women from the surrounding community to assist with the production and processing of the coffee on the estate.
To citris, to sweet, one of my least favorite.
