We are excited to add this new offering to our lineup this year from Aloha Farms Hawaii- a group of Kona coffee farms located on the big island of Hawaii. Their mission is to promote sustainable coffee practices and provide opportunities for Hawaiian families and farms. Their commitment to sustainable agriculture and regenerative coffee growing produces an excellent product. Aloha Farms Hawaii are the founders of the largest co-op of Kona coffee farms with on-site processing and milling. The coffee is grown in the golden corridor which consists of coffee farms that stretch for 22 miles along the old Mamalahoa Highway where the coffee grows in the shade of Mount Hualaloa.

The Peaberry is considered their "Champagne of Kona coffee"- their rarest and most sought-after coffee. An anomaly in the growing process, the Peaberry is the only bean fully developed in the coffee cherry. Normally, there are two beans that grow in each cherry, and they press together within the fruit causing the flat and rounded beans we all know. With the Peaberry, that second bean is absent all together, which results in one oval bean. Peaberry coffees have a greater density of flavor, sugars, and lipids compared to regular coffee beans. Peaberry coffees are rare, and normally only make up around 3-7% of an entire crop. There is extra labor and time involved in the sorting process which results in 100% Kona Peaberry of the highest quality.

Cupping Notes: Rich, smooth taste with mild acidity, creamy body, and a light lingering aftertaste with notes of milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel, nuts, and citrus.

Early efforts were dismal. Tried City, Full City and Dark roast so I upped my game and screened the beans to find 14, 15,16 and 17/64ths bin sizes. Technically, peaberry is a singleton seed in the cherry, but in practice it usually means "less than 18" and includes broken beans. Roasted each bin size separately to full city. The 14 roasted very fast in 5 minutes, the 17 in 12 minutes with the 15 and 16 falling in between. Never got much crack implying low moisture. Smaller beans dry faster. Brewing still not great so I sieved the grind to 800-1400 micon grain size when 500-1100 (recommended for Aero Press) seemed bitter. Smaller grains, about a third, was reserved for espresso blend. This was still bitter so I played with brew strength and settled on 9.5 gm/6 ounce cup. A lot of work to salvage the coffee, but it did improve the brew from 1 star to 3 star. 670-853 MASL is relatively low altitude and I will seek higher next time. Learned a lot. Never would have made the effort for $7 coffee.

I purchased the Kona Peaberry as well as the Kona Extra Fancy. The beans of the Peaberry were very uniform. I roasted using my Hive roaster using my standard "new coffee" profile. They roasted beautifully and I roasted them to just beyond City (medium dark). So how did they taste? Maybe the best coffee I've received from CBC, smooth with a nice body. Are they expensive yes but half the price of someone else roasting it (retail). I would buy them again, for special occasions.

After allowing the beans to rest for five days after roasting over an open flame wood fire and coals made from sugar maple.... Yes, this IS what excellent coffee is all about. It was the easiest to roast and has the smooth, wonderful taste of coffee that I like !! No bitterness. No acidity. And it did not adsorb a smokey flavor from the wood. We tried a "wood-fire" roasted coffee at a restaurant a couple of days ago, and the smoke overpowered everything. Obviously they were not using Kona Peaberry or Kona Extra Fancy !!! If you like to indulge yourself (or someone who loves coffee) you must try this one.

Very easy to hand roast over a campfire using a vintage wire mesh popcorn popper. Of the six green coffee beans, this bean was easiest by far to get a uniform roast. It has very little chaff. When it hits the first crack, almost all the beans crack at the same time so it is a short-lived event. The beginning to end of the first crack might have taken 10 seconds, whereas other beans smear this te out as long as 30 seconds. It yields a very nice cup of coffee.

A lover of Kona told me this was the best Kona he'd ever tasted. I thought it was pretty good as well.

Cupping notes: Sweet character with well developed clean Chocolate/Nutty flavor. No floral or fruity notes detected ( which is unlike what was seen with the Kona Extra Fancy roast). Solid body and roast flavor, in spite of the short 17.3 percent development time. This bean seems tolerant. Moisture loss was 14.1 percent, which is on par with other peaberry beans taken to this level of roast (City+). This is a higher percentage than what is seen with more typical beans. Roaster: Gene Cafe CBR101, stock 2016 model Ambient temperture: 87 degrees F. Quantity of beans 227 grams/ 8 ounces by weight. Preheat the EMPTY Gene Cafe Roaster for 5 minutes at 392 F. Rapidly remove the drum and fill it with the beans, zero the timer. Put the drum with beans in it, back into the Roaster, start the timer, start the roast at 392 F. (Try to keep the stop, fill, replace, start well under one minute) After 5 minutes of dehydrating the beans at 392 F, raise the temperature to 460 F and continue roasting. Start listening for first crack before the 10 minute mark. (This Peaberry makes a more detectable crack than other varieties of peaberry, a real plus). One minute and ten seconds after first crack has started, lower the temperature to 440 F. Continue at this temperature until roast is complete. For my batch, the beans were at full yellow at 5 minutes. By 6 minutes browning was evident. First crack was heard at 10 minutes and 20 seconds. Temperature was lowered to 440 F at 11 minutes and 30 seconds. Beans were pulled and force cooled at 12 minutes and 30 seconds. First cupping was 18 hours later, and this "quick taste" is in the description above. I only bought one pound of this bean, and hoped to nail it within two half-pound batches. Luck was on my side, and it all worked out with the first roasting. Looks like I get to enjoy the other half pound in the future. This one is definately on the "Buy again list". Who will like this bean? Those who like lighter roasts, with big chocolate/nut flavors along with a clean sweetness. Those who enjoy a solid body, and a lighter level of roast character. These beans will be visually darker than their "tasted level of roast" ; don't let the color fool you.

One of the best Kona's I have had. I love the fact that I can control the roast. The beans were fresh they got here very fast good flavor. My favorite coffee Kona Peaberry. Get it while they have it. As soon as I opened the bag of green beans I almost started eating them they smelled so good. I would have ate some but I don’t have many teeth left and I am not getting dentures til these fall out so no eating beans for me.
