The Captain's Coffee
This single estate Tanzanian Peaberry is absolutely delightful. It's bright and crisp with a sweet finish and smooth texture. Look for notes of lime, honey and clementine.
Arrival Date: February 8th, 2019
Acidity & Brightness: Bright and crisp but without a bite
Balance & Finish: Balanced with a clean, sweet finish
Body & Texture: Medium bodied, smooth, silky texture
Flavors: Lime, honey and clementine
Grade: Peaberry, grown at 900-1200 masl
Processing: Fully Washed
Varietals: Bourbon, Kent, SL-28
Roasting: We prefer this coffee City + to Full City (Light-medium to medium). This will maintain the crisp, citrus-y notes and still bring out the body. It roasts very evenly and you can take it darker if you wish for a bit more body and to tone down the brightness, but avoid roasts much darker than Full City +.
Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing
Our Review: Tanzania is synonymous with Peaberry these days. It's a well earned reputation as Tanzanian producers quickly realized they were filling a niche in the coffee market and over the years have begun to specialize in producing some of the world's finest peaberry coffees.
The Tudley Estate is located in northeastern Tanzania near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. Made up of mostly SL28 tree varietals, the Estate also produces Bourbon and Kent varietals, as well as a small crop of avocados and macadamia nuts. Coffee here is picked, then depulped and washed the next day. Drying is done on raised beds, with Estate staff carefully turning the coffee throughout the day. Drying takes between 10 and 15 days depending on the weather. Tudley is a large estate with over 180 permanent workers picking and processing more than 60 tons of coffee per year.
This particular peaberry comes from the Northern Highlands of Tanzania right on the border with Kenya. In fact, you could compare it to good Kenyan coffee but without as much of the tannic, winey bite. Very balanced, with a crisp front end, you'll find a silky smooth body throughout the cup. Look for notes of lime, honey and clementine followed by a clean finish.
