💥 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.

Each roast has truly been better than the last. We’re hesitant to get others b/c we love the one we have at the time so much, but we have yet to be disappointed. Methodical roasts are legit some of the best we’ve had. And this one is no exception. Dur Feres is an amazing Ethiopian: crisp, bright notes with a great mouth feel and incredible aroma. Highly recommend.
Juicy and Fruity Espresso!
Excellent beans for espresso or americano. Not your regular espresso experience, in a good way!
Best coffee I’ve had in a while
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!
