Tanzania Tweega - Peaberry
FLAVOR NOTES: Bing Cherry, Ginger, and Lime.
CERTIFICATION: Rain-forest Alliance
VARIETAL: Typica & Bourbon
While most coffee cherries contain two half beans, peaberry coffees make up approx. 5% of the total harvest and have one single bean within the cherry. This provides for unique roast and taste that many come to love!
Tweega coffee is wet processed and sun dried. It comes from the washing stations in the Southern Highlands (Mbeya) of Tanzania encompassing over 10,000 small farmers having a harvest period from June-August. The Mbeya region of the Southern Highlands consists of small holder farms that own, on average, 500 trees each. Many practice subsistence farming methods and all their coffee is handpicked.
