Peaberries are coffee beans that are generally too small to meet certain size requirements for roasters. But don’t let their diminutive size fool you - these are high quality beans that would otherwise slip through the cracks on the coffee sorting table and result in lost income opportunities for producers. This lot of peaberries is a mixture from smallholder producers in the southern regions of Oaxaca and Chiapas. The name derives from the cultural significance of the maguey plant, part of the agave family, which is native to the region and has been cultivated by farmers for medicinal properties since pre-Hispanic times.
