The Peaberry coffee bean also goes by the name caracoli. Normally the coffee plant yields a fruit that develops as two halves inside of a cherry type enclosure. However, only one of the two seeds gets fertilized on rare occasions. This results in an oval (or pea-shaped) bean, referred to as Peaberry. Of all coffee beans harvested, Peaberries are most commonly found in about 5%.Peaberry coffees are particularly associated with coffees from Tanzania. That is why it's typically called Tanzanian Peaberry. Due to the shape of the Peaberry coffee beans, they roast differently. Because of this, the Peaberry coffee beans are separated from the flatberry coffee beans before roasting.The Peaberry coffee beans are largely accepted to be a better bean. The Peaberries are said to roast better because of their round shape which allow the bean to roll in the roasting chamber with little resistance. In our tastings, we have also found the Peaberry beans to produce a much sweeter taste than flatberry beans.
the coffee industry, Kenya is widely considered to be one of the best producers in Africa. Wholesalers, Retailers, and Consumers alike appreciate the results they get in their cups and stores. The research and development done for the production of coffee is unequaled by other coffee producing countries. The best part of the Kenyan coffee equation is the individual coffee farmers. They continually improve their methods and practices to yield unparalleled quality and consistency.When
you combine both of these things together, you get Kenya Peaberry. Tasting a bean from a country known for quality and adding to it that it's bean rarely found, you're bound to get a true coffee experience.Yesterday
, we had the opportunity to use the Kenya Peaberry in the Saeco Primea Ring Plus. The coffee the came out was unbelievable. We used the espresso shot function and essentially pressure brewed the Kenya Peaberry into two distinct shots. I then added the shots to steamed milk and created the most amazing Latte I've ever experienced.The amazing beans created a flavor I had never tasted. I have truly been converted to a Kenya Peaberry drinker. It created an amazing crema and strength usually seen by top espressos and our Superautomatika. I was impressed by it's versatility as we've drank this as a regular auto drip coffee before. Very
rarely do we see coffees that perform so phenomenally and so consistently. This would make a great morning cup of joe or gourmet coffee beverage. Stay warm, and as always, Happy Brewing!
