Radio Imbibe Episode 41: Efrem Fesaha, Boon Boona Coffee

The founder/CEO of Imbibe 75 Place to Watch, Boon Boona, talks about how he’s sharing the history and culture of African coffee in his Seattle café.

When Efrem Fesaha made the leap from a career in finance to open Boon Boona Coffee, a roastery and café in the Seattle area and an Imbibe 75 Place to Watch, he looked to his family’s home in Eritrea, East Africa, for inspiration. For this episode, we chat with Fesaha about Boon Boona’s approach to coffee, from its focus on African producers and Africa’s significance in coffee history, to the role it plays in the Seattle area’s African immigrant and small-business communities.
