Peaberry is a round bean that accounts for less than 3% of our Kona crop. The shape and density give it a different flavor than a regular bean. Peaberry fans describe it as bold and rich.
Typically, coffee has two flat-sided beans inside the fruit. But at the end of every branch, the beans will merge during pollination and a peaberry will form. They are separated out during the milling process. In the recent past, they were considered a “defect” because they roast up differently than a flat bean. So millers removed them for consistency. Now they command a premium price because of their scarcity and flavor.
We roast-to-order on all our Peaberry shipments. This is to ensure you get the freshest cup possible.
