Peaberry is one of those coffee words that everyone knows, but a surprising number of people don’t understand. It’s pretty simple really. Coffee beans usually come in pairs inside their cherry, but sometimes there’s only one bean and it soaks up all the lovely flavor from the cherry for itself and that’s a peaberry.

While peaberries occur naturally, they don’t end up all in one lot naturally. The discerning eyes of sorters must spot the smaller, rounder beans and pick them out by hand. The intense extra work for a 100% peaberry lot definitely shows up in the cup. The clean, sweet flavors of this coffee from Tanzania are a direct result of of it being a full-on peaberry lot. Enjoy! (We sure do.)
