Subject: Where's all the peaberry?
 

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.

I sent you an  e mail, and can post it here.  http://www.burmancoffee.com/coffeelist/  has some, whats nice here is that if you click on the individual link, it tells you when he got the beans.

No affiliation, I have 5 lbs ordered that I will get friday sometime,

Sometimes the sorted peaberries cup better than the rest of the beans and sometimes they don't. Tom and most good buyers will pick what's best.

thanks for the link, and I'll re-check SM, since I may in fact be half blind this week.

What's worse...we're getting a new stove delivered today, and the old one is direct wired.  So, I have no way to heat water for the french press today.

I fear I'm going to have to go to $tarbuck$

Thanks for the info!  Do you know, if Peaberry is considered to taste better than beans with 2 halfs?
or just an unusual occurrence.

Posted November 9, 2012 link

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.
