If I Were A Peaberry - What Would I Be? Starbucks Reserve Malawi, Maybe?

If I were a Peaberry, what would I be?

There are so many good Peaberry coffees.  These little round-beaned coffees are among my favorites.

And the newest to hit the Starbucks Reserve(R) shelf is the Malawi Peaberry from Sable Farms.

While it boasts of "lime zest and a spicy citrus complexity," I don't find it to be complicated at all.   I find it to be singularly delightful.  Roasted evenly, smooth tasting and calmingly aromatic.

The taste is so even, I don't need cream or sugar, although, that's my preferred method of drinking.

At 12.95 for an eight ounce bag of beans, it's on the 'expensive' side, but actually almost a bargain for rare coffees.

Starbucks takes these Reserve (R) coffees seriously, so they don't roast much and they won't be around long.  Don't tarry - order yours today.  When it's over, it's over.

Happy Sipping.
