STORY

Sweet stonefruit is perfectly paired with crisp clementine. Light and balanced is the perfect way to describe a returning favorite, Nano Challa. Recommended for fans of the neighboring cooperative, Genji Challa.

Farmlevel Story: Along with some of our favorite Ethiopian washing stations (including Yukro and Duromina), Nano Challa is a washing station made possible thanks to assistance from Washington DC-based NPO, TechnoServe. Slightly smaller than its neighbors, Nano Challa represents the harvests of approximately 400 smallholder farmers who deliver freshly-picked coffee from as high as 2,200 MASL on surrounding slopes.

Leveraging a Penagos eco-pulper - Colombian de-mucilageing technology capable of washing coffees using only 1 liter of water for every kilogram of coffee - Nano Challa produces remarkably clean and nuanced coffees without taxing Western Ethiopia’s limited resources.

After pulping, demucilaging and soaking; Gera’s Technoserve mills employ one more technique that sets their coffees apart. Rather than exposing coffee immediately to direct sunlight, coffees are first dried on shaded beds (while being constantly stirred by hand) to enable a more gradual temperature change believed to strengthen and intensify flavors. This added step costs the mill days of labor and requires additional drying beds and we’re proud to reward their commitment to quality.
