Peaberry Coffee is made from a naturally occurring coffee bean mutation. While a regular coffee cherry contains two coffee beans, occasionally only one will develop and grow. This results in a single, round coffee bean – a peaberry! However, this mutation only accounts for about 5% of the coffee beans in a harvest. This is why it is such a prized bean!
Because of how it develops and roasts, peaberry coffee noticeably differs in flavor from regular coffee beans. Most notably, it will be a lot more complex in the upper range of flavors and aromatics (think acidity and sweetness), as well as a more syrupy mouth feel.
Another important factor in flavor is the processing method. This peaberry is made with washed coffee, which means the coffee was cleaned completely from all pulp and mucilage before drying. The result is a clean, classic coffee flavor – the perfect cup for any occasion!
We roast this washed peaberry with our medium roast profile, which best showcases the beautiful bouquet of flavors that this bean offers! For regular washed coffee see our Washed Medium Roast. Or, for a darker roast Peaberry Coffee, check out our Roaster’s Choice!
Note: All of our coffees are freshly roasted, with an expiration date embossed into the seal. We recommend consuming our coffee within by this expiration date. However, for optimal flavor, it is best to consume within 60 days.
