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 loving this coffee right now. It's my first couple of pounds and I'm looking forward to the next. It's supper rich, not delicate, but not burnt in any way. It's like the best dark chocolate. Awesome straight, or as a latte. Also does a wonderful cold breew.
Berry and chocolate forward with an truly special sour milk/fermented dairy aroma that I’m in love with. Chemex, Japanese-style iced, and aero press all transcendent
This coffee absolutely elevates my morning coffee ritual.
This is a really good coffee, I also bought some for a friend and they love it. I wasn't expecting to love it because I've had some disappointing blends from other roasters. I was wrong.
Great taste with hint of blueberry and then chocolate. Smooth pour over.
