Kenya Asali Peaberry 200g
The is a Peaberry coffee.
Peaberries are a mutation where there is a single seed in a fruit as apposed to the normal two seeds. It is said that peaberries have more intense flavours as the single seed does not share resources during development. Producing them are a labour of love as they require hand-picking to separate them from the rest of the lot.
About the Farm:
Made up of SL28 & 34 varietals, this coffee is found at the foothills of the Aberdare ranges that form the Eastern border of the Great Rift Valley. Under the Asali Cooperative which has membership of over a hundred farmers, it produces more than a thousand bags each year. During harvesting in March, the coffee cherries are handpicked and pulped in a wet mill after which they are fermented for 24 hours and dried on drying tables. All defects are removed by hand at this drying stage.
This highly complex bean with floral aroma, has notes of blackcurrant and winey taste. The full-bodied syrupy mouthfeel with bright acidity leaves a memorable tannin aftertaste
