This fully washed coffee is produced at Jagwan Farm, owned by the Jackson Wanjohi Ndinah. The estate sits on 1.8 hectares in Othaya, Nyeri.

Cherry is selectively handpicked and then pulped. Coffee is fermented overnight and washed in clean water to remove any remaining mucilage. Wet parchment is transferred to raised beds where it sundrieds for 14 to 21 days. As it dries, parchment is turned regularly to ensure even drying. 

PB stands for Peaberry. Peaberry is a name given to a very specific shape of bean. In Spanish, peaberries are called “caracol”, which means “snail”. The name aptly describes the shape of the peaberry bean, which appears slightly curved in on itself.     

Peaberries are the result of a natural mutation in the coffee cherry. Whereas there are usually two beans nestled together in each fruit, in a cherry with a peaberry mutation, only one bean forms. As a result, peaberries are a single, rounder bean.     

Peaberry mutations occur in approximately 5% of all coffee. The beans are known for being rounder, smaller and denser, which can contribute to a more even roast color, when handled correctly. Many people find peaberries to have a sweeter flavor profile, as well.    

Since peaberries are a natural mutation that is not visible from the outside of the cherry, peaberries must be sorted out during the screen grading stage of dry milling. The peaberry screens have the smallest holes, which are oblong to allow the rounder beans to fall through.
