About Kenyan Peaberry

Many people all over the world wonder what makes Kenyan peaberries special. Well there are many factors that give it the unique taste it has.

The Kenyan Peaberry is a special type of coffee bean formed when two seeds of a berry fuse into a single tiny oval rather than two flat-faced sides.

According to, “A peaberry is a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans.”

play Kenyan Peaberry hails from Central Kenya. The climate is conducive enough for its growth and development. (Serious Eats)


The Kenyan peaberry is harvested using a special sieve to painstakingly separate the small percentage of peaberries from the ordinary twin beans. A light roast is then applied to carefully preserve the peaberries' delicate taste profile.

Kenyan pea berry offers a medley of ripe tropical fruits, a tangy acidity and crisp, clean aftertaste.  It has often been praised as suitable alternative to regular Kenyan coffee.

These are the descriptions that have been used by of the Kenya Peaberry:

"Quietly rich, savory-sweet. Vanilla, dark chocolate, balck sage, tart raspberry, sweet butter in aroma and more pungently in the cup. Tart but richly rounded acidity; smooth, lively mouthfeel. The finish is crisp with aromatic black sage in the long."
