Is it the wrong time of year to find green peaberry beans? I looked at SM's and also some other bean site (never used it so the name escapes me) and SM had one peaberry and the other site has none at all.
are we between harvests? bad growing conditions? am I just THAT impatient?
just curious, I need to order about 10-15lbs of 2-3 origins/varieties and I need both peaberry and some Colombian. 3rd might be a nicaraguan limoncello.

Hi, Ive have come across an artive on Peaberry beans..but not much info was given. Ive gone thru Coffeegeek and many coffee sites..such as Stumptown, Allbean direct and Intelligencia..but can;t find a site that sells and informs about this type of bean, any help would be appreciated. Rocco
It occurs about 5% of the time in the worlds coffee crops. While it is claimed to be better then its twin brothers it is only a claim however there is more work involved in separating peaberry beans from the rest of the crop so it usually brings a little more money and this of course means it must be better, right?
I pick peaberry beans the same way I pick normal beans, if the cupping description fits my tastes I will buy it.
