Kenya Peaberry is grown in the Nyeri region, situated in the Central Highlands of Kenya, where acidic soils provide the perfect conditions for coffee that is known for intense flavours and well-rounded aromas. The peaberry variety of bean, also known as 'caracoli', is created when a coffee cherry produces only one bean, as opposed to the usual two. This single, pea-shaped bean is separated from the regular 'flat berry' beans before roasting, which ensures a high-quality even roast, and, as the peaberry has absorbed all the goodness from the cherry, a fine quality and special liquoring is achieved. Around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are of the peaberry variety, and it is often said that, due to the round shape of the bean, it roasts more evenly for a fuller, smoother flavour. Kenya Peaberry makes for an incredibly flavoursome coffee, showcasing a fine acidity combined with a slightly fruity flavour.
These beans are supplied green, un-roasted, and in a 908g bag. See our roasted Kenya Coffee if you'd prefer to receive pre-roasted coffee.
