Smooth and creamy, these beans are perfect for sweet espressos and aromatic ibrik! “Brazil Sul de Minas” is a no-brainer for all coffee lovers who respect a classic cup that actually tastes like coffee, but has no trace of the “burnt” flavour characteristic of dark roasts. This classic, full-bodied, naturally processed coffee from Brazil works equally well with or without milk.
Once you open this pack of coffee, you’ll notice something different. Aren’t these coffee beans the cutest you’ve ever seen?! A little rounder, a little smaller, a whole lot prettier than your regular ones. That’s because this year, Goat Story came across a truly unique kind of coffee. These beans are called “peaberries”. What’s so special about them, you wonder?
A peaberry is the result of natural mutation occuring inside the coffee cherry. Normally, every cherry contains two coffee seeds (or, as we call them, beans) that lay flat against each other — much like two halves of a peanut. Something funny happens with about 5% of the total coffee grown in the world though. A coffee cherry produces a single child instead of a set of twins. You know how it works afterwards… A single child gets more attention because it doesn’t have to share it with its sibling. Because peaberries get all the love that’s usually divided amongst coffee twins, these beans tend to be sweeter and packed with more flavour than the standard ones.
Peaberries are usually mixed with regular beans in Brazilian coffees. But when Goat Story came across a selected range of peaberry beans from Brazil, they, of course, went all in. Here it is: the Brazilian peaberry from one of the most famous coffee-growing regions in the world, Sul de Minas.
