Kenya Peaberry Plus – Mt. Elgon – Kikai – FCS – GreenIn Stock: 122 Lbs
Taste: Earthy and complex. Slow down the roast to bring out the sweetness from the peaberries.
Roast: This one started off with a bang! First crack started quickly and went into second crack without much of a break after first crack. The peaberries turned a beautiful roasted chestnut color during second crack.
About: A peaberry is a natural mutation of the coffee bean inside its cherry which happens in about 5% of the world’s coffee. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut. Because there’s no way to tell from looking at the cherry itself whether there’s a single or double inside, they need to be hand-sorted after picking and processing in order to be sold separately. Occasionally, growers will hand-select the peaberries for special sale, sometimes at a premium—not only because of their taste, (they tend to be a little sweeter and more flavorful), but also because of the amount of labor involved, as well as their relative rarity.
