Lots of fun and serious discussions in cupping here to offer you our take on what we taste as prevalent in the final cup, roasted at medium, cupped black, absolutely no additives with a cupping score 85 due to the clean washed milling and fermentation.

Cupping Notes: Chewy, luscious bitter-sweetness, molasses, cocoa powder, Tootsie Roll taffy, subtle hints of fruit and fresh herbs, with moderate acidity level. Best @ City (light) through  Full City+(medium/dark). Great for espresso. Excellent @ fine, espresso, and Turkish grinds.

The dry fragrance has a pleasant bittersweet core, with a faint fruit note, and toffee-like sweetness. The wet aroma has similar toffee/caramel appeal, with substantial cocoa roast tones behind it, and an herbal accent that twists through the steam.

The flavors are well balanced, and this Zambia peaberry lot has a moderate level of acidity which adds to the base flavors. After cooling off a little, the cup offers a subtle dried fruit note, and an herbal hint comes into play in aroma. While light (city) and medium (full city) roasts capture the acidity/bittersweet combo, this Zambia peaberry also makes a delicious dark/espresso coffee with a medium body, smooth finish, citrus and chocolate notes. 

This Zambian Mafinga Peaberry coffee comes from the NCCL Estate, located in the Kasama region of Zambia. With farms on elevations between 1300 and 1600 MASL, this region is ideal for high quality coffee. Through the milling and washing process, the best cherries are carefully selected with double handpicking (ensuring a consistency of over 98% of fully formed red ripe cherries) before being mechanically dried. This high quality milling standards make this a very nice heirloom quality peaberry coffee.

Nice & mild

At "Full City/Medium Roast" I used it both in French Press (nice results) and in my GCP for Espresso (not ideal beans for espresso. The balance leaned too acidic for me). Overall, nice beans, properly roasted, delivering decent, if somewhat non-descript results to the cup.

Another Peaberry

I had been ordering the Module estate peaberry, but after being retired and the price is going up, I had to try a different African coffee. I saved a few dollars with this order and the quality and taste were quite good.

Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you found our Zambia Mafinga Peaberry NCCL Estate Fresh 100% Arabica Coffee Beans @ Various Roast Levels to be a good quality and tasty coffee.
Unfortunately, some peaberry pricing has increased due to a rise in export costs at origin, though farm and export costs have stabilized now, and we do no expect any further increases for these bean types for the remainder of 2023. Thank you for your continued business!

Peabeery packed with toffee flavor, or taffy. Strange lingering taste for this Peaberry.

Mafinga Peaberry quality beans from a quality roaster

It is often my experience that after letting African coffees rest after I have opened and tried them, their taste profiles change a lot. Zambian beans become smoother and somewhat lemon, without acidity. Many times I'll try quality African beans at different points over a three-month period. These are quality beans and I have truly enjoyed their wide range of flavor. I use them in a moka and in an automatic espresso machine. Highly recommend Mafinga Peaberry!
