I tend to buy peaberry coffee's a lot more than most but not for the rareity marketing aspect it we see a lot.  For me, they're a joy to roast and this comes down to that they're really easy in the roaster because of their density, they can handle the heating process easily.  You can also get about 15% more volume than normal and that helps with production for my small operation. 

Now of course there's something to be said about the rarity (about 5% of all coffee produced has this mutation) however not all Peaberry's are made the same. I've had plenty of disappointing ones.  With that said given it's rarity and that some are just not my quality  - it takes a bit of extra effort on my end to find them, but come fall/winter a bunch generally become available and the payoff is nice. It's a common trope now that most of the African coffee's we're buying are Citric in flavor in some way, so expect citrus and juicy to lead the way which lends to a bit larger of a mouthfeel depending on your brew method. This one will hang around until January most likely.
