OMG.  This is a GREAT cup of coffee.  Tom nailed it -- meyer lemon,
supported by a perfect foundation of body, mouthfeel, and citrus rind.  This
is roasted to C+.    I bought a 5-pounder, and I'm thinking of re-upping for
another 5.  HELLO, Kenya!

Glad to hear your response. I too think the Kenyas are amazing this 
year, and unlike Ethiopia, it is good crop (and no other 
interferences like the ECX issue in Ethiopia). Expect a lot of good 
Kenyas this year. And I focused a lot on Peaberries too, since we 
have had such good results.

Tom,
Are there any flavor qualities that are common to peaberries?  I've noticed
that many coffee sellers treat peaberry as if it is automatically a higher
quality, but I do not understand why.

They are certainly rarer, maybe that's enough to garner a premium if the
peaberries are any good?

There's a Wikipedia article with
links back to the Sweet Maria site.
What I've read about Peaberries has tended to suggest that they may have a
stronger flavor and may tend to roast quicker.
Here's a review on the
coffee cuppers site that compares flat bean to peaberry in one particular
origin (Congo Kivu).
