This beautiful cup has a nice summer feeling. You will find floral flavours and a hint of citrus. It's the tea-like Ethiopian coffee with a smooth mouth-feel we all love!
Nano Challa is a cooperative and washing station, established in 2009. They were the first washing station in Agaro, set up as part of the Technoserve coffee initiative. This lot is part of a small and carefully curated selection from the cooperatives in the west. They are located in Agaro, close to Jimma. The cooperative has about 500 members from the Genji Chala area. This specific area has recently established a reputation for very flavour-intense and spiced coffees with unique flavour attributes. Before these cooperatives were established, the farmers mostly produced lower grade naturals which were sold as Jimma Grade 5.
The cherries for this lot are selected from smallholders with less than 3 hectares per farm, mostly from farms located around 2000 meters above sea level. They use Penagos ecopulpers, and barely ferment the coffees. After pulping the coffees are often soaked under clean water overnight before they are dried on raised tables.
