The Laos Peaberry has a mild acidity, silky body and sweet flavors reminiscent of brown sugar, caramel, milk chocolate, raisin and nutmeg.
We’re proud to be able to fit this extraordinary peaberry into our coffee repertoire. Truth be told, we’re also pleased to finally provide this extraordinary coffee to customers who constantly remember the Tanzanian Peaberries and the Ugandan Peaberries we’ve had in the not so recent past. But what is a “peabery?” A peaberry (also called caracol, or "snail" in Spanish) is a natural mutation of the coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but in about 5% of the world's coffee only one of the two seeds of the coffee plant is fertilized, and a single, oval "pea" shaped bean is created - a peaberry! Some coffee drinkers think they taste noticeably sweeter and more flavorful than standard coffee beans.
