Kenya Nyeri Peaberry Green Coffee Beans


Kenya Nyeri Peaberry Green Coffee Beans



These carefully-selected Green Coffee Beans are unroasted and available for our customers who are joining the growing home-roasting movement.

This Kenya Peaberry is one of the award-winning roasts from our 2017 Roaster of the Year. This coffee is grown by the family owned farms of the Othaya Farmers Co-operative Society Limited (FCS) with more than 14,000 members who generally have half acre plots averaging 250 coffee trees.

“Peaberries are sought after by coffee connoisseurs for two main reasons: the small size and rounded shape of the beans means they roll around in a smooth and fluid motion inside the coffee roaster for an even and consistent roast. The other major benefit of peaberry beans is that they have been carefully selected, which is essential for optimal quality, regardless of bean shape.” - Jacob Long, Roastmaster

Roasting coffee at home can be a fun way to experiment and discover different tastes for your enjoyment, giving you a whole new way to love coffee. However - do not attempt to grind unroasted green coffee beans! They are hard enough to damage your grinder. You cannot brew green coffee beans. You must roast them in one form or another.

We’re especially fond of this single origin, because it helped solidify our title as 2017 Roaster of the Year, from Roast Magazine.

Customer Review

Coffee to Water Ratio

Using the correct amount of coffee will ensure that your coffee is brewed to strength, without over-extracting or under-extracting the coffee to compensate for an inappropriate dose. We recommend 2 grams of coffee for every fluid ounce of water used to brew. Weighing coffee is the most accurate way to measure the appropriate dose. If a scale is not available, we recommend 2 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee for every 5 ounces of water used to brew.

Grind Size

Producing the correct particle size in ground coffee is one of the most important steps in coffee brewing. In general, a finer grind will produce a more intense brew and a coarser grind will produce a less intense brew. At the same time, a grind that is too fine will produce an over-extracted, astringent brew, and a grind that is too coarse will produce a weak, under-extracted brew lacking flavor. In pour-over methods, grind size also affects the rate of extraction, as water will pass more slowly through a finer grind, and more quickly through a coarser grind. We strongly recommend burr grinders over blade grinders.

Water Temperature and Quality

Water temperature dramatically affects the extraction of coffee’s flavor during brewing. We recommend brewing with water at 200-202° Fahrenheit for best results. Using fresh, clean, chlorine-free water is essential.
