Kenya, Ndimaini Peaberry
This variant is currently sold out
Our friends at Crop to Cup imports have done it again. For the past several years we've tasked them to find us the best peaberry lot Kenya has to offer. This 2021 harvest lot from the Ndimaini FCS does not disappoint.
This lot was grown by a community of farmers belonging to the Ndimaini FCS producer group near the town of Mathira in the Karatina District of Nyeri. Peaberry, is the term given to cherries that only produce one seed, instead of the typical two, and resembles a small round pea. What we love about peaberries are that they typically pack a punch. What would have gotten distributed amongst two seeds, get densely packed into one. Hello flavor country!
In the cup you'll find lush dark fruit flavors like elderberry and black currant. It has deep rich sweetness like molasses, and a savory undertone like sun-dried tomato. All these flavors sort of zing along a zip-line of caramelized grapefruit. This is for those who like big, bright, bold flavor.
Grab a bag while it's in season. This lot should last us through December 2021.
