💥 Awarded Best Coffee of 2020 by Mistobox!
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.

I’m a big fan of this coffee! I highly recommend this coffee!
Actually light roasted
I love this coffee. 5000% worth the price. I've been searching everywhere for a natural process Ethiopian that is *actually* light roast (not just calling it a light roast when the beans are charcoal) I grind this as fine as I can and steep it for 2 minutes in boiling water in my aeropress and even then don't get any gross bitter flavors. Just bright and strong coffee. I'd **** for a decaf of this.
Friendly Service, Great Coffee
My first package was lost in the mail and after waiting a week I asked if Methodical would send me another bag. They did! (bless them) I had the Dur Feres Ethiopian blend and it is fantastic on espresso. Other bonus? The 2nd 'lost' bag was delivered to me by a neighbor 4 weeks later and I have enjoyed this coffee now as a pour over as well. I will most certainly be returning to Methodical for this reason. I am so appreciative they so easily opted to send me a new bag. I am also impressed by the customer experience/outreach. Nice job folks!
Our Espresso Favorite
We love this coffee - definitely our go-to for making Americanos!
Considering how much coffee my wife and i drink, it made sense to start buying 2lb bags. I am very thankful that Methodical offers coffees in a 2lb size, it seems as most shops just offer 12 oz and 5lb. Who can finish 5lbs of coffee in two months? This is an excellent roast and smells incredible, lots of crema, and inspiring coffee high. Thank you!
