咖啡公豆母豆 Peaberry and Flat Beans
咖啡公豆母豆 -常聽人說，把咖啡「圓豆(Peaberry)」稱為「公豆」，並把較常見的「平豆(Flat Beans)」稱為「母豆」。然而，咖啡本身是雌雄同株，每一朵咖啡花同時擁有雌雄兩種器官，所以便沒有所謂的公樹、母樹的區別，也就沒有所謂的「公豆」和「母豆」。
“Male” and “female” coffee beans – we often hear people say that coffee “Peaberry” is called “male” beans and the more common “flat” beans is called “female” beans. However, coffee itself is monoecious, and each coffee flower has both male and female organs at the same time, so there is no so-called difference between male and female trees, and there is no so-called “male” bean and “female” bean.
Usually two semi-circular beans, called flat beans, are seen inside each coffee berry. But there are also a few cases where the inner seed is not split, but there is only one oval round bean. According to coffee farmers, the coffee beans that grow at the ends of the branches of coffee trees are more likely to have peaberries. Or encountering pests and diseases during the growth process, the internal development of coffee berries is not healthy, and only one round bean grows due to natural selection. Generally, peaberries is about 5% to 10% of the fruit on a coffee tree. Next time, before grinding the beans, count the ratio of peaberries, it seems to be a lot of fun.
Maybe it would be fun to talk about how to brew peaberries.
