At the core of each of our dark chocolate covered coffee beans is what’s considered a rarity in the coffee world – a peaberry. A peaberry is a natural mutation of the coffee bean that occurs inside the coffee cherry so that when opened, there is only one little bean inside the cherry instead of the normal two. This kind of mutation only occurs in 5% of the world’s coffee. Peaberries tend to be smaller, rounder, and denser than the average bean and because only one bean develops in the cherry, they are known to have a more concentrated flavor than a typical coffee bean. Because there is no way to tell by looking at the outside of a cherry if a peaberry lies within, these little beans must be carefully hand-sorted and selected after washing and processing.
For these bite sized pieces, we’ve carefully roasted these flavor packed peaberries and covered them in our premium dark chocolate to create a deliciously crunchy and semisweet treat.
