Peaberry: A Delicious Defect

Fun Fact: Did you know that Peaberry coffee is actually considered a growth defect and is the result of too much of the chemical element Boron? In 5-10% of coffee crops, only one of the cherry seeds is fertilized, thus creating a singular pea-shaped seed where the halves stay fused together as opposed to breaking into two separate halves. There are other somewhat mysterious factors involved but what is produced is one delicious defect!

Peaberry is highly considered a more superior coffee due to the bright floral and fruity flavors and richness that it offers. It also requires more manual labor to separate the peaberry beans from the "flat berry" beans during harvesting, which factors into its higher price per pound. In my opinion, when roasted properly, it is well worth the extra cost! And for a limited time here at Matador Coffee Roasting Co., to celebrate the new year, we're offering a 3 lb. bag of our Tanzanian Peaberry for only $53.00 (that's $10 off the regular price).

Happy New Year all - here's to a year full of memorable coffee experiences!
