This is the Kenya Lenana Peaberry brought to you by Equator Coffees & Tea. Kenya Lenana is a coffee that Equator has been sourcing for many years. This lot combines peaberry coffees grown by smallholder farmers in the Nyeri and Kirinyaga regions on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. Point Lenana is one of Mt. Kenya’s highest peaks and is the inspiration behind this coffee’s name. Peaberries are the result of a natural mutation where only one seed develops inside the coffee cherry. Normally, two seeds develop with flattened sides facing each other, but when only one seed develops, there’s nothing to flatten it which gives peaberries their peculiar round shape. Because of their unusual shape, peaberries react to heat differently when roasted which can be problematic for coffee roasters. As a result, they’re often sorted out during processing and sold separately so a more uniform roast can be achieved.
