These peaberry coffee beans were hand-selected from each harvest in the farms of our long-term partner community, Colonia Siete Estrellas (Seven Stars). Peaberries ("caracol" in Spanish, also called caracolillo in Central America) are roughly 10%-15% of coffee beans that fuse into a single oblong bean inside the cherry, rather than separating into the two typical bean "halves", also known as "flat berries". They have a unique flavor, both because of the concentration of flavors in the cherry while growing, and because they roll around more evenly inside your roaster.
