Technically a “defect” the peaberry is the single, small bean that developed inside the coffee cherry. Normally, two beans develop within the coffee cherry.
From our friends at Cafe Imports, we learn about this peaberry coffee from Tanzania:
“About 250 smallholder farmers from several local villages are served by the Insani AMCOS. This AMCOS was registered in 2001 and build its coffee-processing unit in 2015. The farmers deliver their coffee as cherry and it is depulped throughout the afternoon and evening. Then it is graded in water channels and soaked for 8–12 hours, then dried on tables for 7-10 days.”
