Peaberry Kona; the Little Bean in Big Demand!
When we pick our kona coffee (by hand) most coffee cherries contain two coffee beans nestled face to face.
That's why coffeebeans are flat on one side. But, about 3-5% of coffee cherries hold just one small oval-shaped bean instead of two flat-sided beans.
These small oval beans are called "peaberry" beans. Peaberry kona coffee is rare simply because nature makes it so. Out of every 100 bags of Kona coffee produced, only 3-5 bags will be Peaberry.
Peaberry beans roast up wonderfully. Full bodied and smooth, with just a hint of bite. Connoisseurs have dubbed Peaberry the "Champagne of Kona"
As more and more coffee lovers discover this unique little bean with the great big taste, the demand is growing.
Demand for peaberry is already so high that in order to continue supplying Peaberry Kona to our customers, we often have to purchase unroasted
Peaberries from smaller farmers that don't sell to the public. That's why the price of peaberry fluctuates; demand!
Enjoy this decadent little bean that natures makes so rare.
