Cupping Notes: These are very hard beans and roast well to all profiles. Light Roast profile: Full bodied, medium body with bright fruit notes and somewhat floral, along with hints of cocoa and cinnamon. The Medium Roast profile will have a more bold coffee flavor.
Coffee plants produce their fruit in the form of a coffee cherry. Typically, the coffee cherry grows two halves of a bean within a single cherry. Sometimes the coffee cherry produces a single bean rather than two beans – this is known as a Peaberry. From a coffee drinker’s perspective, Peaberry coffee beans are much smaller in size than typical coffee beans. Since only one bean rather than two are formed, Peaberry coffee beans are said to be more robust in flavor and even tend to hold more of their fruity notes (good for taste) with the slightly darker roasts than regular Arabica coffee beans.
