Columbian Peaberries - sweet!

HLing | Mar 17, 2010 12:57 PM

Rather than doing mail order I've been getting green coffee beans from one of the two local places that offer them. The less expensive source is within walking distance to me and has consistently fresh green beans....except that I don't always know what kind of bean I will be buying from batch to batch. This I found more than acceptable since I've just begun in the last year or so to roast and grind my own. Well, yesterday was my lucky day. I found out from the very nice man the beans offered at the moment were Columbian Peaberries. They roasted in my skillet, and ground in my stone grinder like a dream! I didn't wait the usual 4, 5 days after roasting. I ground it the next day, and waited 1/2 hour before making it with my Aeropress. It tasted like sweet nectar. Very round, smooth, and really, strangely, sweet.
Any more information on the different kinds of peaberries? Are some sweeter than others?
