Arrived May 2023. This is a high-demand item. We usually run out before the new crop arrives. Packed at origin in 60-kilo GrainPro® bags.
Unfortunately, unless you buy 4+ FULL (132 lbs.) bags from our warehouses in NJ & CA we are forced to pass a warehouse fee of $49 per bag. It is cheaper to ship 3+ ( without a warehouse fee) bags via truck (LTL), anywhere. This does not apply to smaller orders.
These peaberry coffee beans were hand-selected from each harvest in the farms of our long-term partner ASOCAFE. 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.
