A unique blend of specialty and premium grade coffees that produce an iconic natural Ethiopian flavor of blueberry, blackberry, and cherry. This coffee is also organic certified.
Where its from
All coffee falls somewhere on a grading scale. Coffees scoring higher than an 80 is deemed specialty grade, and these coffees make up around 5% of the total coffee market. The 88+ scoring coffees are the easiest to sell due to their interesting flavor profiles and they also bring the highest profits. But farmers then have to find buyers for the rest of their lot which is typically the majority of their crop.
This is where Michael McIntyre comes into the story. Michael developed Dur Feres, a carefully selected blend of coffee from families and communities where the highest priced lots have already been sold. Dur Feres offers the same level of traceability, organic certification, and iconic Ethiopian flavor profile, but provides a steady rotation of fresh crop and a dependable flavor profile for buyers. Truly a clever solution to a sustainability problem.
Like having fruity pebbles with my coffee every morning.
The Beans Of Your Coffee Shop
This coffee is a very basic and a simple single origin. A good starting place but by no means the most flavorful variety. Sweet, cherry, vanilla flavors, thin bodied, and unmemorable are all characteristics of this Ethiopian bean. I would have loved a more complex fruity flavor especially coming from a natural Ethiopian bean. Considering all the wonderful options Methodical has to offer I would hesitate to buy this again. On to the next bean!
Beautiful packaging, delicious coffee
Firstly, the packaging is gorgeous, down to the cardboard box with simple floral line drawings. We've been a fan of Dur Feres coffees for a while, and this one is beautiful. Delicate, bright fruity notes, with subtle undertones of rich caramel and chocolate, lightly roasted beans. We're very happy with it!
Amazing is the only word
Love, love, love Methodical and there coffee! Found them on Trade but out of the many coffees I had throughout my subscription, I now just buy through Methodical. And this specific coffee is my absolute favorite! So good with every method I have tried.
Wow this is coffeegasmic!
Wow! What can I say other than this is probably the best coffee I’ve had! Amazing amazing amazing!!!
