Default Earthy Coffee?

I love Tanzanian Peaberry, but I always split it 50/50 with Yirgacheffe to bring up the "earthiness" and fill out the body a bit.
I've been drinking that blend for 6 or 7 years now.

I'd like to find something a bit more "earthy" than the Yirgacheff.
Light roast, lots of body, medium acid would be perfect. Even a medium roast might work, but that kind of overpowers the Peaberry.

When I say ""Earthy", think cowboy coffee or something like Tim Horton's, if Horton's weren't so darkly roasted.
Earthy like soil or dirt is what I'm after. Really.
I've thought of just throwing dirt in the basket with the Peaberry, but Weeze wouldn't drink it.

I'd just like to tweak the blend and take it up a notch.
Maybe I need to add a couple different beans to the Peaberry?
