From the Tatu region, north of Nairobi, this single estate is located at 1700-1800 metres, and uses the SL28 and Ruira 11 varieties. The coffee is sundried in flat beds, which adds a wonderfully jammy flavour. Peaberry, also known as caracoli, is so called because unlike other beans where the fruit ("cherry") of the coffee plant contains two seeds ("beans") that develop with flattened facing sides, only one of the two seeds is fertilized, and the single seed develops with nothing to flatten it. This produces an oval (or pea-shaped) bean, hence the name 'peaberry' This coffee is especially good brewing with a filter or cafetiere.
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.
