The Captain's Coffee
This classic Tanzanian Peaberry is a grade above the rest (thus the "Plus"). It's bright and crisp with a sweet finish and smooth texture. Look for notes of orange, lime and a hint of raspberry.
Arrival Date: August 25th, 2016
Acidity & Brightness: Bright and crisp but without a bite
Balance & Finish: Balanced with a clean, sweet finish
Body & Texture: Medium bodied, smooth texture
Flavors: Orange, Lime and a hint of raspberry
Grade: Peaberry Plus
Processing: Fully Washed
Varietals: Bourbon, Kent
Roasting: We prefer this coffee Full City to Full City + (Medium to Medium-Dark). 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 +.
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.
For those who don't yet know, a peaberry is simply a coffee bean that didn't split in two during the maturation process. This results in a smaller bean that is round instead of two beans that are flat on one side. Some coffee experts believe peaberry beans to have a more subtle, delicate profile compared to their normal counterparts, others argue there is little discernible difference between the two from the same plant. We don't care as long as it's just good coffee!
This particular peaberry comes from the Northern Highlands of Tanzania on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. It received the "Plus" distinction by being hand selected and sorted from an ALREADY hand picked and sorted crop. This helps to insure there are very few defects, resulting in a very high level of consistency and balance in the cup. While cupping this coffee, the first thing we noticed was its wonderful raspberry aroma, though this flavor is a bit muted in the cup. The notes that shine are orange and lime which compliment the crisp acidity without giving the coffee much, if any "bite." We also found it to have a lovely and smooth medium to full body and sweet, clean finish.
