Tanzanian Peaberry is grown throughout the country; however, the majority is grown on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. Most coffee in the region is grown on small mountainside farms, or fincas, although a few large plantations do exist. Tanzanian peaberry is grown at an elevation of between 4500 and 6000 feet.
Usually, coffee cherries contain two seeds, or beans, flat on one side and rounded on the other. In the case of Peaberries, only one seed is fertilized. This results in a single round seed with a ridge down the middle. The round bean makes for a more even roast and very favorable. Peaberries are considered by some to be superior in quality and taste from regular flat beans. My medium roast Peaberry has a wonderful flavor.
