Despite grower discontent and sporadic social disorder, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. This sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (often better) cup than normal beans from the same crop, from which they may or may not be separated during grading.
ROAST STYLE :
Roasting this peaberry which is always fun, we decided on a roast style that includes a gentle ramp from the drop temp of 190 degrees , to maximum gas through to first crack we then nearly killed the roast from first to second about 3 mins and dropped the roast at 13 mins 215 degrees.
In the Cup: Bright, balanced, delicate. Plum, peach, black currant, flowers in aroma and cup. Extremely sweet bright acidity; light, silky-textured mouth feel.
