Tampa Bay, FL-
The newest cold brew that Kahwa will be serving to its customers is a Tanzanian Peaberry cold brew! Tanzania Peaberry is a rare varietal grown throughout different parts of Tanzania. They are heavily grown near Mt. Kilimanjaro as well as Mt. Meru. This is because the Tanzania Peaberry is typically grown at higher elevations.
This is a washed coffee that features a beautiful chocolate flavor as well as some subtle berry notes and a citrus like after taste. Peaberry coffee is a unique mutation where only one seed forms inside the cherry instead of two. They are also slightly smaller than the average bean and have a rounder shape (See Below). Along with those differences, Peaberries are also denser. All of these characteristics affect the roasting process. The Peaberries tend to roast more evenly and require different adjustments to heat level and roasting time. Specifically, because of the density of these beans, doing a slow, steady, careful roast is required in order to ensure that the flavors fully develop throughout these dense beans. All of this results in some specific differences in flavor profile.
