Description: Peaberry coffees are rare because they are a natural mutation of the coffee bean. Normally, there are two beans together like a peanut in a coffee cherry, but peaberry coffee has just one bean in each cherry. Where normal beans are flat on one side, peaberry beans are rounder and also known for being more flavorful. There is no way to differentiate cherries with peaberries versus regular beans, and so peaberry coffees have to be hand sorted during harvest and processing.
