A complex, interesting coffee with lots of tangy, fruity and sweet flavour notes, and a lingering vanilla aftertaste.

For those not familiar with Peaberries, they're a naturally occurring variant caused by a variation in rainfall and heat, in which a coffee cherry has just one oval or round bean instead of the usual pair of beans (seeds). They're more round in shape than a standard coffee bean, hence their "Peaberry" label.

Peaberries can offer concentrated flavours and interesting complexity, although whether the fact that they're peaberries is truly responsible for their superior flavour is a matter of opinion.

The simple fact is, though, these beans taste great!

How it Tastes

When I first tasted this coffee, other than the obvious complexity and tanginess, I found it quite difficult to pin down the most prominent comparative flavour which I like to do when naming coffees, as you'll have noticed.

After a bit more tasting (yup, a tough job, but someone has to do it, hehe) I decided that the most obvious taste comparison is Rhubarb crumble and custard.

There's a really interesting, lingering tangy acidity that reminds me of rhubarb, and a smooth and sweet note which also lingers, and leaves me with a subtle vanilla aftertaste.

Rumukia Farmers Co-operative

This coffee is produced mainly by smallholder farmers in Nyeri County, adjacent to Mount Kenya, processed by the Ndia-ini wet mill, managed by the Rumukia Farmers Co-operative Society.

The farms are mainly family-run and are about half an acre on average, each with around 250 coffee trees.

My favourite beans for cappuccino

I've tried about half a dozen of the Cworks beans, all excellent, but this is my favourite for cappuccino. It's a light roast which makes it an unusual choice for a cappuccino. But I find with a fine grind (setting of 4 on my Sage Barista Express) it works perfectly. If, like me, you find some medium and dark roasts taste a bit burnt in a cappuccino - more roast than coffee - then please try these beans for a really smooth and complex tasting coffee.

Excellent Service.

Bought as Christmas gifts. The customer service and delivery was excellent and can't be faulted. Thanks.

Lovely and true to description

When brewed pourover it really brings out the tang of rhubarb really clearly. Will order this one again.
