Brazil's geography makes it ideal for growing coffee, nearly all of its country lies within the tropical zone. With its relatively stable, mostly humid and hot climate along with it’s rich soils making it prime place for coffee to grow. Due to these perfect environmental factors we are able to bring you this luxurious Brazilian Arabica Peaberry. Take a look at your roasted beans and you will notice they are very uniform in shape and their size, Peaberries only develop in 1/10 of every coffee cherries and there is only 1 bean per cherry! - Compared to other beans which produce 2. Normally the fruit (“cherry”) of the coffee plant contains two seeds (“beans”) that develop with flattened facing sides, but sometimes only one of the two seeds is fertilized, and the single seed develops with nothing to flatten it. This oval (or pea-shaped) bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are of this form. Normal coffee beans are less commonly called by contrast flat berry, this develops an extra level of complexity within the beans taste and behaviour in the cup.

Naturally processed these beans are grown in the Minas Gerais, High Cerrado region above sea level, between 1100m - 1200m. Cherries are handpicked when they have reached full maturation and taken to suspended beds so they can dry. This process alone takes around 21 days, after that the beans are hulled and milled. Finally, they are taken to rest on big bags at the warehouse.
