Ethiopia Nano Challa is a coop that started to be so successfull, they ran out of space to process their members’ coffee. This last year, they opened Nano Genji a few miles away with brand new processing equipment along with dozens of drying beds to accommodate their growing membership. The early results are nothing short of astounding.

We are proud to present the work of Nano Genji. This offering is lot #6 and was mechanically washed then soaked for 12 hours. Its excellence is a testament to the work of a cooperative that pays its members high premiums and relentlessly focuses on quality from picking to processing. From the first time we cupped it, we were wowed with its sparkling body and its exceptional qualities. It is perfect for the lover of fruity and floral coffees and brings to mind fresh goji berries with soft chamomile notes. Nano Genji is a not-to-be-missed offering from Ethiopia, an origin whose history is just as rich as its future if this lot is any indication. And we think it is.

Sparkling and bright, with sweet and tart notes of lime and blackberry jam, this is an exceptional washed coffee. We’re loving how fruity & floral it is, and while it has those sharp citrus aspects that we adore, it also has the soft subtlety of a nice, mellow herbal tea, like chamomile and hibiscus. It’s been a lot fun brewing this coffee on an array of different brew methods, most notably for iced Chemex and drip brew, and it makes for a really delicious & vibrant espresso shot!




What is Single Origin Coffee? Unlike coffee blends, Single Origin Coffee has a single geographic origin. This could be a single farm or a single country. For the majority of these coffees we will have a direct relationship with the farmer who grows it. Because coffee is a crop, harvesting is seasonal and the timing is specific to each region, our selection of single origin coffees will vary throughout the year.

To make it extra special, we commissioned local artist, Alicia Binkley of Monkey Ink Design to illustrate our Single Origin labels. Enjoy!
