Located in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Africa Plantation Kilimanjaro (APK) is made up of four individual farms; Two Bridges, Lyamungo, Mlama, and Kahawa. The estate is owned by Alejandro Galante, a coffee farmer from Antioquia, Colombia, with each farm managed individually. 95% of APK’s production is washed, though recent experimentation has led to more honey and natural processing occurring. Drying is done on raised beds, where APK employees carefully monitor the moisture level of each lot to ensure even drying.
What are peaberries?
Peaberries are small, round, fused beans that occur in 2-3% of all coffee cherries. They are uniform in size, yielding a concentrated flavor and a lively cup. We roast our Tanzanian Peaberry to Dark, highlighting its winey acidity, citrus like flavor, and medium body.
