Terms: What's a peaberry? It refers to the shape of the coffee seed (bean). Typically, coffee cherries have two coffee seeds (beans). One side of the coffee seed is flat and the other is round. However, sometimes a natural mutation occurs and only one coffee seed forms, resulting in a coffee seed (berry) that is round on all sides. This natural mutation seed is referred to as a peaberry. Typically smaller and denser, this peaberry coffee has to be hand sorted after processing. Extra time and labor goes into creating a peaberry variety.
