Kenya produce some of the world’s most distinctive coffees and this little beauty is a superb, rich, flavourful example. A highly prized Zawadi coffee, purely peaberry beans, grown in the high-altitude plateaus of Kenya. Only a small percentage of coffee beans grown are peaberries and this unique type are created when only one seed inside the berry germinates and grows into a single oval bean, rather than two flat faced sides. Expect an intensely fruity acidity with big flavours of rhubarb and red berry jammy sweetness.
For some reason my previous review is showing only 1 star. I cannot amend that review, so I am adding this one.
This is a lovely coffee.
I am a bit of a fan of peaberry coffees and this Tugboat offering is very nice, brewed in my Aeropress. I find it to be of a milder roast (no bitterness) with a slightly sweet flavour. For me, it is a lovely, everyday drinker.
We are both coffee drinkers and Kenya Peaberry is our favorite,so pleased we have found Tugboat, item quickly delivered and a little extra sample to try. Will be back for more.
This order was a forward planning, and I have yet to taste the coffee. Delivery wad quick and I was delights to find that my 1kg order comprised 4x250g re-sealable bags. I was wondering how I would keep a 1kg bag of beans fresh no problem!
I met Jess and Togboat brews back in August in Truro, and having spent about 30 mins smelling some amazing coffees I bought a small pack of the Kenya Peaberry. Suffice to say that I have just ordered 1 kilo and nothing else compares!
I grind this from beans to use in a cafetiere and it is wonderful. Full of flavour and sweetness there is nothing else I will now drink.
