Peaberry Trilogy (Brazil, Kenya & Thailand)
A coffee cherry typically produces two flat-sided beans. However, when one of the ovules fails to develop, then the cherry will produce only one small oval shaped bean. This is known as a ‘Peaberry’ and which has higher concentration of favour relative to that of the flat bean. Peaberries represent only around 5% of the crop, and their production is generally dependent on rain fall and heat i.e. the hotter & drier it is, the more peaberries are produced.
Small but packed full of favour. The cherries are allowed to dry naturally on the bushes before pulping . Sugar coated nutty overtones with subtle acidity, creamy cocoa, moderate body with a long sweet aftertaste
