This coffee from Covoya Coffee comprises the Castillo Peaberry variety from three different estates in Zambia’s Mafinga Hills: Kateshi, Luombe, and Ngoli. Peaberries are a distinct naturally forming mutation in the coffee cherry, where only one seed forms inside the cherry instead of the typical two seeds. Because only one seed forms, it develops a more spherical shape - making it roast behave uniquely in the roaster and developing a uniquely sweet coffee. The overall quality is attributed to this coffee's exceptional handling, processing, and drying.
The Castillo Peaberry and the unique terroir of Mafinga hills, which includes clay and sand soil and native forest reserves, yields a coffee with brown sugar sweetness, flavors of rich blood orange, a lingering essence of lavender, and a thread of sage and malt, adding to the complexity. When brewed as a pour over, this coffee provides the experience of a velvety body and mild acidity.
