Description About Boon Boona Coffee - Jebena Blend
It’s hard to find coffees roasted on the darker side that maintain the flavor of the beans themselves. That’s why we love Jebena. This medium-dark roast retains the rich, delicious flavors from the Ugandan and Ethiopian coffees it is comprised of while giving you that hint of bitterness that manifests as a dark chocolate kind of note. Sweet caramel is the other major flavor here, and we love this roast in bolder brew methods like drip brew, French press, or espresso.
- Coffee Type: Whole Bean
- Product Size: 12 oz
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.
For a French Press brew we recommend a 1:12 coffee to water ratio with coffee ground at the consistency of sea salt. Add your grounds to the brewing chamber. then add twice the water as there are grounds to the chamber. Stir gently and allow to bloom for about 30 seconds. Place the top on the press and allow it to steep for 4 minutes. Plunge the press slowly and enjoy!
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!
