Behind the bean:
Approximately 15 farmers across a mix of coops throughout the central Kenyan regions of Embu, Kisii, Kirinyaga, Machakios, Nakuru and Nyeri are responsible for the production of this Peaberry graded coffee. Grown in a picturesque location surrounded by mountains and national parks, the high altitude at which it is grown makes this bean particularly dense and concentrating the inherent bright acidity and fruity notes.
The Peaberry bean itself is somewhat of an anomaly, as it forms as a single seed or bean inside the cherry rather than the normal cherry which contains two seeds, with flattened sides facing together. Due to its rare occurrence, only about 5% of beans harvested are of the Peaberry variety. These are separated from the rest of harvest during processing, resulting in a refined and much sought-after flavour profile.
