The term peaberry comes from the shape of the beans. Normally inside of a coffee cherry two seeds develop and smash up against each other creating one rounded side and one flat side on each seed. In peaberry coffees, only one seed is fertilized and this the seed develops as round all over and typically smaller and denser than normal coffee seeds (beans). These coffee seeds are carefully sorted out and placed together. Peaberry coffees are typically intense in their flavor and are thus sought out for their quality.
