Normally, seeds in a coffee cherry develop in pairs; two seeds in each cherry each with a round side and a flat side where the pair meets in the center of the fruit. But every so often(about 5% of the time) only one seed develops. This smaller, more dense and fully rounded seed is dubbed “peaberry.” Due to their size difference, these are often sorted out and sold as separate lots. Whether you think these little football shaped peaberry seeds have something special to them or not, this lot from Gicherori washing station in Kenya, prepared in the traditional Kenyan style, makes us fall in love with the little guys even more…
