Starbucks Reserve® Zambia Peaberry Terranova Estate
Zambia Peaberry: A flavorful taste
This Zambia Peaberry coffee from the Terranova Estate is one of the better roasts in stores at the moment. In my opinion, the cup is more complex than the description on the bag. While the acidic citrus rings true, I was reminded most of eating S'mores by this coffee on many levels. First, and another reviewer criticized the brew for this reason, the coffee seems somewhat dry. This was the one way that the current Brazil Bourbon exceeds Zambia Peaberry. Due to this dryness, this African roast is not really a cup to savor as much as it is a cup to guzzle on the go. That's not a miserable experience though because the taste is so good, as long as you appreciate and enjoy an acidic cup of coffee. Another way it reminds me of s'mores comes in the flavor blend of chocolate and vanilla, the latter of which I perceieved as marshmallow root. The whimsical frivolity in this luxurious wake-me-up experience becomes a joy as you drink the beverage down, though I wish that the roast was less dry and slightly smoother.

Makes a good iced Clover
My barista recommended this for iced coffee and it was tasty. I was suprised the beans were as big as they were. Seems like peaberry beans are usually tiny things. Anyway, good for a warm day.
