Meet the Keynote

Efrem Fesaha of Boon Boona Coffee

We’re excited to announce our 2022 BizFair Keynote Speaker, Efrem Fesaha of Boon Boona Coffee. He is a first-generation Eritrean American whose family moved to the US in 1988 when his father received an offer to work for Boeing as a Mechanical Engineer.


In 2011, on an extended visit to his native country of Eritrea, Efrem was inspired by the coffee culture in its capital Asmara and wanted to pursue a venture in coffee. Upon returning to Seatle, he launched Boon Boona Coffee with the goal of sourcing the best quality coffee beans from Africa. Working closely with coffee farmers from many African nations, he developed long-lasting relationships with them and helped ensure the sustainability of their crops.


Join Efrem on Saturday, September 24th for this FREE hybrid one-day conference. His keynote begins at 8 AM PT and kicks off the full-day event concluding at 4 PM.
