Trader Joe’s Limited Edition Peaberry Coffee from Papua New Guinea. A peaberry coffee is somewhat rare. Instead of two coffee beans growing within the fruit, only one does. They call this a “peaberry”. 100% peaberry coffees are known for a slightly more concentrated or rich taste, and sometimes have a stronger brightness to them.
Ever since the inception of my family’s coffee obsession, we have had the need for an inexpensive coffee that is readily available and tastes good. We love to order from specialty roasters online, but since we can consume a pound of coffee in less than a week we need a lower cost option. So we have been trying coffee from different stores in our neighborhood. We find Starbucks to be roasted too dark most of the time, and Caribou didn’t really do it for us either. Enter Trader Joe’s. Their coffees look great and are nitrogen sealed in cans for freshness.
For $7.99 per 13 ounces, this could be the winner. The coffee appears to be on the darker end of a medium roast, with some oils showing on the beans. Let’s find out if it tastes good.
