Ran into my friend David (The owner of Hawaii White Mountain Coffee Co.) at the Parker School Farmers Market yesterday. I picked up a bag of his Javaloha Peaberry and thought I would start my day off with a cup of his coffee. This morning it is especially good as the cool misty rains of Waimea have returned! Thanks David for an excellent cup of coffee!!
A little bit about Peaberry coffee, it is the rarest of rare. Only about 6% of all harvested beans are peaberries and the single bean results in a very concentrated flavor. Peaberries form when one of the two halves of the seed develops, thus all the nutrients go into the remaining seed. Because the remaining half gets all of the nutrients the density of the been is more complex thus giving the coffee a wonderful robust flavor. (Here is a diagram of a normal two halved bean)
