Tanzanian coffees are grown on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, under the shade of banana trees. Tanzanian coffee is somewhat similar to the coffee of its neighbor north of the border (that's Kenya, for the geographically challenged J). In the United States, a very popular Tanzanian coffee is the peaberry type, and there are a couple of theories about why that's so. Peaberries seem to have a mystique about them. What's a peaberry? It's when a single bean develops inside the coffee cherry, instead of the familiar two "flat beans." Why so many fans of the peaberry? The theory is that all the goodness of the coffee cherry is in only one bean, rather than split among two. Tanzanian coffee is probably the brightest coffee we offer here at Z Street Coffee.
