Tanzania Edelweiss Estate Peaberry

$ 19.00
Peaberries are far more prevalent in Tanzania exports than almost anywhere else in the world other than Kenya. The two neighboring countries are the only ones to have successfully commercialized the grade. In Tanzania’s case, peaberry coffee is regularly in higher demand than larger screen sizes, so much so that the grade is practically synonymous with Tanzania’s specialty sector. This is thanks to many years of successful marketing of what is, in every coffee-producing country, a naturally-occurring mutation of the seed that accounts for 5-10% of all coffee worldwide. Peaberries from specialty producers and high elevations roast beautifully, thanks to the tightly controlled size and density. For the same reason, the cup is often more focused and cleaner than multi-screen versions of the same coffee. 


Edelweiss Estate is a coffee paradise. Natural forest canopy shades over 400 hectares of trees, more than half of which is preserved as native forest. There are reservoirs and a dam, allowing efficient irrigation and conservation of water. Growing mainly a Bourbon variety first cultivated in India and other newer Kenyan cultivars, the clear focus is quality, and it’s exhilarating to see and taste the attention and dedication of farmers who are clearly resolved to make the most of their extraordinary corner of the planet.

"Edelweiss ...every morning you greet me"

Remember "Sound of Music"?
This coffee greets me like the Edelweiss (Swiss flower) that gives its name to the Edelweiss Estate in Tanzania. I'm not a coffee expert, it just tastes good....and...."greets me". And my purchase supports " more than 50 full-time families who have access to housing and land to grow their own food crops.
