BRAZILIAN PEABERRY - SOUTH AMERICAN COFFEE BEANS
The South American country of Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer, and has held that title for over 150 years. They are responsible for around a third of the total worldwide coffee production.
Our Peaberry coffee beans come from a farm in the Cabo Verde district of Minas Gerais. Established in the 1920s, the farm has passed down to the founders’ grandson who now owns and runs it. It supports 36 families and provides seasonal work to over 150 people.
Peaberries are estimated to make up to around 5–10% of a coffee bean harvest. They occur as a result of a natural mutation, or defect, inside a coffee cherry, where one of the two ovules fails to pollinate. This results in extra space for the single developing seed. Within this space, a larger and rounder seed grows inside. This is a peaberry.
We’ve lightly roasted this delicate Brazilian coffee, and it has sweet, nutty overtones and notes of chocolate and marshmallow. Packed full of interesting flavour, it is perfect for creating nitro cold brew.
Packed and supplied in 100% biodegradable resealable bags and available for you to buy online as whole beans for you to grind yourself, but we've also made our Brazilian Peaberry Speciality available to purchase as freshly ground coffee in coarse (for cold brew) or medium grind.
