Details: The Peaberry Arabica Coffee is known to be a novelty coffee with good reason. The Peaberry, also known as the caracoli, is a very specific type of bean. Most coffee “cherries” contain two seeds, and they each develop a flat side, but sometimes only one of the two seeds gets fertilized creating a round bean. This pea-shaped bean is known as a peaberry. The “Peaberries” are hand sorted and sold separately. The peaberry is an unusual coffee that is known for its’ bright, and sharp character. Indonesia was introduced to coffee by the Dutch in the mid-seventeenth century. It is home to the first commercial coffee plantations in the world. The first coffee production sold was in 1712 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Coffee production expanded well during these early days; however, in 1877, the coffee plantations were wiped out by a coffee root disease forcing the country to replant new coffee trees. Most new coffee plants came from Africa and were primarily Robusta Beans, because these were more root disease resistant. Today Indonesia is still a major producer of Robusta Beans. However 10 to 15% of the Coffees produced in Indonesia are Arabica beans.
