Starbucks Reserve® Malawi Peaberry Sable Farm
Impressive flavor with a strong start and a smooth medium finish. A very good value for the quality and price for a reserve coffee. Great single origin coffee. Enjoy in the evening once the day has started to cools off. Don't miss this one.

The coffee is good, but not worth the expensive price. I should have paid attention to the size of the bag: 8 oz. When I looked at the price, I really thought I was purchasing a 1 lb. bag.

Refreshing lime coffee? Yes.
The Malawi Peaberry from Sable Farm posed a risk. Any coffee that boasts hints of lime could amount to flavor catastrophe; however, this was actually an amazing brew that both surprised and refreshed. Highly recommend this brew for these balmy summer months. My one criticism is that the after-taste was stronger and longer-lasting than the 'average' coffee drinker might like. This could be due to what Starbucks terms the "crisp acidity," an oh-so slightly metallic tinge. For someone who lives for coffee though, the lingering flavornote might really prove an added bonus. Enjoy.

Very good coffee
I have tried virtually all of the reserve coffees, I know of only one that I missed, and I was a bit skeptical when I read that this coffee had flavor notes of lime. But after brewing my first cup, I was pleasantly surprised at how balanced & tasty it was. Compared to the price of the other reserve coffees, it's a wonderful cup at a little more reasonable price. Peaberries aren't often offered as reserves, yet this is the second time this year (Zambia terranova the other). I recommend the Malawi peaberry, it's a great cup of coffee at half the price of the Maui or Kona.
