Boon Boona’s Renton Coffee Shop opened in January 2019 and is located in the heart of downtown Renton, a short drive from Seattle/Bellevue and an even shorter drive from Seatac Airport. Boon Boona Coffee based in Seattle, sources the finest coffee from Africa. Providing high quality espresso, pour over coffee, roasted coffee, un-roasted green coffee beans, and pastries.
Boon Boona was born in 2012 serving green (unroasted) coffee to the East African community who enjoy the traditional coffee ceremony in their homes. By 2015, our green coffee had a reached a dozen cities in North America. In 2016, we launched our roasted coffee sourcing from Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia. Our intent is to bridge the gap between African coffee farmers and our North American coffee consumer.
Our coffee shop in Renton offers a view into our coffee roasting production, espresso bar, pastries, sandwiches and beer/wine. The greatest attraction in our cafe is the coffee ceremony, an essential social occasion for many tribes in East Africa; The coffee ceremony experience consists of pan roasting green coffee, grind, then brew in the traditional clay pots known as Jebena (Eritrean/Ethiopian). The experience is fun, educational, and delicious.
