Peaberry Coffee From Ethiopia
April 29, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Peaberry beans are a rarity in any given coffee crop — around 5% of every crop are peaberry beans. And what's a peaberry? Inside a coffee cherry, two beans normally form; when only one bean develops, it's called a peaberry, and these beans are prized for their remarkable concentration of flavor. We make it our business to find different, flavorful peaberries from all over the world. You should know that when you see one on our shelves, it's a limited, special one-time buy, and in most cases, we bought out the whole crop!
Right now we're featuring Ethiopian Peaberry, grown in that country's Oromai growing region, between 3600 and 6200 feet above sea level. This region, in central-west Ethiopia, lies about 250 miles from the nation’s capital, Addis Ababa. Ethiopia is said to be the birthplace of the Arabica bean, and these beans reveal everything that makes Arabicas so sought-after. The medium-dark roast brings out all of the coffee's best attributes — balanced body, citrus and floral aromatics, spiced-berry flavors and wine-toned acidity. From first sip to last, our Ethiopian Peaberry delivers a memorable experience.
We're selling Trader Joe's Peaberry Coffee from Ethiopia for $6.99 for each 13 ounce can of whole beans, an exceptional value you'll find only at Trader Joe's, and only while it lasts.
