Introducing our latest seasonal single origin coffee, a peaberry grown in Kericho County, Kenya, and sourced from family-owned farms on the eastern slopes of Aberdares mountain ranges.

When a natural mutation causes one round seed to develop inside of a coffee cherry instead of the usual two flattened seeds, that coffee bean is called a peaberry. Only one in twenty beans is a peaberry, and is carefully sorted out; its rounder shape and higher density allows the peaberry to roast more evenly, and it tends to carry a more buoyant acidity and more complex aromatic ranges.This medium-bodied peaberry coffee presents an aroma of brown sugar with savory undertones, flavor notes of stone fruit, caramel and grapefruit rind, a bright, balanced acidity, and a clean finish.
