This is a classic Peaberry from Tanzania. Since there are relatively few peaberries (they are a single seed in the cherry mutation rather than the usual two flat seeds) this is a blend from several fine estates, some of which have been producing since the late 1800’s. Grown between 1,400 and 1,800 meters above sea level they mature slowly and so with more flavor. The aroma is a fresh citrusy sweetness. Nice brightness in the cup with a full body and smooth finish. Notes of tangerine, cranberry, and chocolate. This is a fully washed coffee and sun dried. This was my favorite coffee when I first moved to NYC and upgraded to specialty coffee from Yuban!

A blend of up to three estates in the south (Lunji, Utengule and Kanji Lanji estates) and four estates in the north (Mondul, Burka, Ngila and Lyamungu estates). In the southern estates quantity is low but quality is high. Here is individual information on the northern estates:

    Mondul Estate

This farm was developed by Count Vottorio Davico di Quittengo in 1931 after a careful inspection of the fertile and uninhabited areas on the slopes of the Mondul mountains in Northern Tanganyika. He fell in love with East Africa after working briefly for the Central Africa Exploration Company in Uganda. After convincing his family in Italy to assist him in the purchase of the land, the Mondul Coffee Estate was founded. Count Davico died in 1983 and was buried at Mondul on the highest hill overlooking the estate. His two sons are now running the estate with the same entrepreneurial spirit and social commitment of their father.

    Burka Estate

This farm was established in 1899 by German settlers and has continued as a coffee producing farm. The estate covers an area of 1500 acres with an annual production of 1000 metric tons. The estate is also home to the Arusha Coffee Lodge, which has coffee plantation tours, horseback riding, mountain biking, and nature trails.

    Ngila Estate

This estate is situated in the Karatu District on the slopes of the Ngorongoro crater and is surrounded by the Ngila Forest reserve. It was founded in the 20th century by a German family and later taken over by British farmers after the WWII, who sold it to Ruldolf Meyer in 1990.

    Lyamungu Estate

Lyamungu is located on the southern foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, approximately 15km from the Moshi/Arusha main highway. It was established in 1934 as a center for coffee research in Tanzania and is now leased to the Mufindi Tea Company.
