After falling in love with coffee culture in Eritrea, Efrem Feseha knew that he wanted to bring the East African coffee experience to Seattle. In 2019, he opened Boon Boona Coffee in Renton, sourcing the highest quality coffee in collaboration and relationship with farmers in coffee’s birthplace, East Africa. In 2021, Boon Boona Coffee opened its second location in Seattle. Through his coffee roastery and cafe, Efrem brings the local community together in a vibrant and inclusive space.

Business Spotlight: Boon Boona


  1. I’m so happy there’s now a Seattle location! I love the coffee that are ethically sourced and it’s super tasty – including the seasonal offerings! Highly recommend a visit. I love how they also support community in Seattle and collaborate with other small bizz to sell products in their store.

  2. Really appreciated that the barista spent time with me describing all the beans for sale here. They know their product! Airy and bright, this is a great cafe to relax at. And outdoor seating in a quiet neighborhood is a big bonus.
