Evidently they share the characteristically sharp, winey acidity with other African and Arabian coffees. Tanzania is known for its abundance of peaberries. A peaberry is a single round bean within the coffee fruit rather than the normal adjacent halves. Sometimes you will see “caracol” on a label. This is another word for peaberry.
