More about Peaberry coffee beans
A peaberry coffee bean results from a coffee cherry (fruit) producing just one relatively round (football-shaped) seed (bean) as opposed to the usual two half-beans which are roundish on one side and flat on the other side. Peaberry coffee beans are typically separated from the rest of the coffee crop and sold as a higher grade of coffee bean. From one to nine percent of any crop are peaberry, and they are said to have a higher density and more concentrated, robust flavor, rich aroma and with a distinct acidity – brighter yet lighter – than non-peaberry coffee beans from the same crop.
