Peaberry coffee is a naturally occurring mutation in all coffee varieties where only one bean is present inside the coffee cherry instead of two. They appear as a result of one ovule failing to pollinate. With the extra space, a rounder seed grows inside. Peaberries can offer bright acidity, sweetness, and concentrated and complex flavours in a cup.

|REGION||Nyeri Country, Central Region|
The Nyeri region is traditionally known as ‘the heart of Kenya’. It has cool temperatures and red volcanic soils rich in phosphorus, making it ideal for growing coffee. Most of the coffees from Nyeri develop and mature slowly, producing extra-hard beans. Farmers predominately grow the SL28 and SL34 varietals, combining them before transporting them to the Rukira wet mill. Here cherries are washed, sorted, and pulped. They undergo a 48hour fully submerged soak in a concrete tank to break down the coffee mucilage.
