Tanzania BCT Select Peaberry is sourced from a group of 235 family-owned farms located in the Mbozi district within the Songwe region of Tanzania. Producers harvest and deliver cherry to a centralized processing station where the coffee is depulped, fermented, washed and dried. The aggregate processing stations have been established in the last three years to provide producers with a centrally located processing facility that can process coffee more consistently and ensure better quality, which results in better prices from the international market.
Tasting Notes: Rich and chocolaty, Tanz coffee is always high on our go to list for stronger chocolaty darker roast coffee. At the medium roasts one will see a more gentle cup with good body, a little sweeter edge, hints of acidity and stronger chocolaty spice. Darker roasts get much fuller bodied and bring out the very strong bakers chocolate edge balancing nicely with classic African spice note and complimenting roasty/smoky tones.
Roasting Notes: Medium to dark roasts are preferred and let the cup shine. Light roasts risk a little earthy tone that will blossom into more spicy chocolate factor darker roasted. We found a quicker roast accentuates some of the sweeter tone and crispness which was a good thing.

I have always enjoyed beans that I can roast to create the flavor of a cup of drinking chocolate. I can name a few pricier beans than these that cause a money sweat getting the roast dialed in and then aren’t as tasty as these beans are. I roasted a batch to city+ and it is awesome. AWESOME! I’d recommend you stock up. I did. This can be used as a chocolate note for a blend or as a straight hot cuppa chocolatey goodness. Thank you to my guys at Burmans and the coop that produced this awesome find. Been on the hunt for this and now I have it!

Distinctive and delicious. Roasted to a Full City + brings out nice bakers chocolate, spice and smoke.
