This coffee was chosen for its cup profile. It has a dark chocolate body with a nutty aftertaste. The acidity is citric with notes of green tea and dark fruits. It's a true Kilimanjaro classic. This coffee comes from smallholder holders who belong to the Mamsera, Mahida and Kirwa Keni cooperative groups in the Kilimanjaro district. These co-ops deliver their coffee to the Rafiki Coffee Mill, which completes the production of nearly 60 percent of all coffee in northern Tanzania. The Kirwa Keni cooperative, in the Rombo district, was established in the 1980s as a member of the Kilimanjaro Native Co-operative Union (KNCU) the first and oldest co-op in Tanzania, dating to 1925. The Mamsera cooperative is led by Mrs. Mary Shayo, its acting secretary, who is known to many as simply Mamsera. The co-op is renowned for producing some of the best coffees in the country, thanks in large part to Mary's leadership.

Need to find the right roast for this...


If anyone can get the perfect roast on this let me know, I have yet to find it, but I am going to keep trying. First 2 roasts were not awesome. First crack is undetectable... typical for PB.

Complex cup at City and City+


This peaberry has currants in the dry fragrance and a rich, sweetness. At City and City+ roasts, this coffee performed well. The cup profile was complex and the fruit, spice and sweetness are particularly noticeable at City+. I also detected a hint of citrus.
