A peaberry (also called caracol, or "snail" in Spanish) is a natural mutation of the coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but a funny thing happens in about 5% of the world's coffee, and a bean is born an only child.
This very lovely coffee is grown in Kericho & Bomet counties, which is in the southern part of the Rift Valley in Kenya.
All Lot 20 coffees have limited, special releases since they are sourced from small micro-lots deemed to be exceptional examples of farming innovation that create unique flavour experiences. They are passionate about farming and have goals to produce delicious coffee that showcases the beauty of their region. The core of Lot 20 is the dry milling (hulling) factory, which contains their rice huller turned coffee huller which they re-engineered the huller and adapted it to hull both washed coffee parchment as well as naturally processed coffee.
Lot 20 has established a nursery alongside their mill in Sossiot. Their goal here is to donate 50,000 plants to the local community, in the hopes that this will create the opportunity for locals to grow and sell their own crop. Likewise, Lot 20’s presence in the community already generates jobs in areas adjacent to coffee farming, such as the many seasonal jobs in coffee picking that provide secondary incomes to local families.
By providing free seedlings Lot 20 are aiming to encourage a younger generation of coffee farmers who are more open to breaking old notions associated with coffee framing, so that they see it as a respectable and sustainable form of employment. What’s more, Lot 20 will be able to keep a better record of any newly established coffee producers. One of their ongoing challenges at the moment is identifying the varietals cultivated on long standing farms.
