You know it! Specialty coffee is a term for the highest grade of coffee available! Using single origin or single estate coffee! Peaberry describes the coffee bean itself, not the origin or variety. Peaberry coffee is a naturally occurring mutation present in coffee varieties where only one bean is present inside of the coffee cherry. A normal coffee cherry will contain two beans. But when these two beans compete for space and flatten out in the middle, much like the two halves of a peanut, the fruit produces only one bean that is round shaped then it is called a “Peaberry.” In about 5% of all coffee beans only one of the two seeds in the bean is fertilized. When this happens this one seed can grow in the whole fruit, and it develops into a larger, rounder bean! According to coffee folklore Peaberry beans taste better because of their higher bean density which improves heat transfer in the roasting process. They are also said to roast more evenly because their rounder shape minimizes sharp edges and allows the berries to roll about the roasting chamber more easily!
