Peaberry coffee beans are a unique coffee bean that has a much richer flavor. The peaberry is only in 5% of the crop that is manually removed from the rest of the coffee harvest. The flavor of the peaberry tends to be finer quality than the rest of the crop and is desired by coffee connoisseurs. A typical coffee bean splits apart into two halves which is why they have a flat side. The peaberry does not split and grows like a pea that contains a more flavorful taste.

The peaberry is not a berry but a special bean to brew yourself a delicious cup of coffee. If you've heard the term before, perhaps you're wondering what is a peaberry, and what makes them so special?
A peaberry (also called caracol, or “snail” in Spanish) is a naturally grown version of the coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but a funny thing happens in about 5% of the world's coffee, and a bean is born an only child.
The peaberry beans are spoiled by not having to share with anybody else. They tend to be smaller, denser, and, let's face it, just a little bit cuter than their flat cousins. Coffee snobs think they taste noticeably sweeter and have more flavor than standard-issue beans.
Occasionally, growers will hand-select the tiny mutants for a special sale, sometimes at a premium
Because there's no way to tell from looking at the cherry itself whether there's a single- or double-header inside, these little guys need to be hand-sorted after picking and processing in order to be sold separately. As a result, in many cases, the peaberries are sold for roasting right alongside their normal counterparts. Occasionally, growers will hand-select the tiny mutants for a special sale, sometimes at a premium—not only because of their taste but also because of the amount of labor involved, as well as their relative rarity.
