Coffee – Signature SelectTM Tanzania Peaberry
Hello Steemit Friends,
I am hesitant when trying store brand coffees. I have been burned in the past with selections that sound good but taste awful. But I was intrigue when I saw the Signature SelectTM Tanzania Peaberry, Medium Roast 100% Arabica. This coffee is part of the Limited Edition series that is from countries all over the world.
The front of bag text described the coffee as floral, vibrant with a hint of chocolate. The additional description was “Grown on the gentle slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Peaberries are formed when only one coffee bean forms inside the fruit, instead of the usual two!” Sounds interesting, right? Note to self, listen to my gut instinct.
It is not that this coffee was bad, it just wasn’t great. The aroma was slightly harsh, acidic. I got a hint of floral but no chocolate. It was acidic up front and dry on the aftertaste. I can put up with acidic but the dryness on the aftertaste is so forward that it left me thirsty. The coffee needed serious doctoring to smooth out the flavor. Sweetener helped.
I will not buy this coffee again. Life is too short to drink mediocre coffee. If you have tried the Tanzania Peaberry, let me know what you think.
