A peaberry is a natural mutation of a coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow 2 to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but in about 5% of the world's coffee, a bean is born as an only child. Peaberry beans tend to be smaller, denser, and rounder than their flat cousins and produce a taste that is noticeably sweeter.
Peaberry beans are rare. Jablum growers search out and hand-select peaberries from every crop of Jablum beans. Peaberry beans roast more evenly because their rounder shape ensures all-over even heat distribution and allows the berries to roll in a roasting chamber more easily. Jablum Peaberry coffee tastes different from normal beans in the same crop. The result is a singlular taste that discerning coffee drinkers adore.
