This single origin coffee from Kenya’s Central Province is crafted purely from prized peaberries - a particular type of coffee bean, formed when the two seeds of a berry fuse into a single tiny oval bean rather than two flat-faced sides.
Many consider peaberries to be more flavourful than regular varieties of bean, and this is reflected in the harvesting and roasting process. Our Kenya Peaberry was harvested using a special sieve to painstakingly separate the small percentage of peaberries from the more commonplace twin beans - we then applied a medium-to-light roast to carefully preserve the peaberries’ delicate taste profile.
With its wonderful medley of ripe tropical fruits, a tangy acidity and crisp, clean aftertaste, this is a lighter and more refreshing alternative to regular Kenyan coffee - the perfect cup to accompany a bright breakfast or a light lunch.
