Description About Boon Boona Coffee - Tanzania Halambo
We can always count on Boon Boona to give us delicious, unique roasts with unique flavors from unique places. Halambo is a great example of this, coming from the AMCO of Halambo Farmers. AMCOS stands for Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society, and they're common in Tanzania. While there are challenges associated with operating as a cooperative of this nature, it has led to better pricing, social services for members, and a general ability to help care for the community at large. This coffee features notes of dried apricot and hazelnut, and is delicious in a variety of brew methods.

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!
