Description About Boon Boona Coffee - Ethiopia Dur Feres
As the first Seattle area roaster to offer Dur Feres coffee, Boon Boona takes a lot of pride in this roast. Produced by multiple small hold farms at an elevation of 1,800 masl, Dur Feres’ producers sell the coffee in community lots as a way to get better pricing and ensure the health of the community as a whole. A dry or natural processed coffee, Boon Boona’s roast brings out flavors of blueberry, cocoa nib, and strawberry. We think you’ll love this roast as a drip brew, pour over, or espresso.

Recommended Brew Methods
We recommend a 16:1 water to coffee ratio for your dosing. Use a scale for best results! For pour over, use a medium-coarse grind size somewhere between drip and press levels. Start with a short pour to wet the grounds and “bloom” the coffee for 30 seconds, followed by two more pours, divided in half to reach the appropriate remaining ratio of water to coffee.
Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
