TJ’s Limited Edition Peaberry

…from Kauai.

If you live in an area bereft of Trader Joe’s and you like coffee, I have a little bit of pity for you today.  Currently, Trader Joe’s has a Limited Edition Peaberry from Kauai.  According to the can, the coffee is bright, smooth, and sweet.  Boy, are they right!

From Wiki:

Peaberry, also known as caracoli, is a type of coffee bean. Normally the fruit of the coffee plant develops as two halves of a bean within a single cherry, but sometimes only one of the two seeds gets fertilized so there is nothing to flatten it. This oval (or pea-shaped) bean is known as peaberry. Typically around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are of this form.

We brewed the first batch in our 12-cup french press.  And the result was lovely.  I found the roast to be a little hard, the bean is slightly burnt; but the flavour comes through!  Medium acidity, medium body.  Bright and sweet.  Very sweet!

So if you live near a Trader Joe’s and love good coffee, go buy this whole bean peaberry coffee!  Or come over to our place and I’ll brew you some.

Cheers!
