coffee peaberry necklace
A tiny peaberry coffee bean. From inimitable local Maine roaster Speckled Ax.
Coffee consumption likely has its origins in Yemen and Ethiopia hundreds of years ago. Coffee plants are now cultivated in over seventy countries around the world.
These earrings are cast from peaberry coffee beans. Most coffee beans are paired inside the coffee cherry. The flattened side of beans occur where the two seeds press against each other. Peaberry beans are alone in the fruit and without this pressure end up with a rounded shape. This happens in around five percent of beans and the peaberry beans are usually smaller than typical beans. They are separated by hand in the roasting process and often have subtle, fermented undertones in their taste.
Ritual and craft. The feeling of doing something familiar with great care.
