Caffe Strada: Celebrating A 30 Year Partnership

January 30, 2019 was a special day. It was a day that was forecast to bring an inch of rain to the Bay, but as the day started there wasn't a cloud in the sky. While the saying, "Well, we need the rain" has become commonplace in this part of California, the sun was a welcome sight, as we knew that this was the day that Caffe Strada in Berkeley was celebrating their 30th anniversary. With the Cal Marching Band scheduled to perform, lines expected to wrap around the block, and free coffee being served all day, this year's January 30th was...

Peaberry Coffee

Peaberry coffee is a bit of a novelty in the coffee world. The peaberry name comes from the shape of these unique beans. Typically, a coffee cherry grows two "normal" coffee beans inside (also known as flatbeans). A peaberry bean results from a mutation that happens inside the cherry where a single bean grows inside the cherry. This results in a smaller oval shaped bean that looks like a tiny football. This mutation is somewhat common, and the average coffee tree produces a small number of peaberry cherries each year.
