Notes Peaberries develop when the coffee fruit develops a single oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. This occurs when only one of the two ovaries in the flower are pollinated, thus producing one seed rather than two. Separated via screening, these beans are heavier and behave differently in the roaster. Their cracking timeline is later, little chaff is released. This blend of peaberries comes from the highlands of Mbeya through the cooperative efforts of several smallholder coffee farmers. Delicious both brewed and as a fine espresso option.
