Fresh crop Ethiopias have got to be our favorite time of year. Refreshing, juicy, light and perfectly paired with the warm summer weather. Nano Genji lot #6 is full of mouth-watering watermelon, peach ring sweetness and nectarine-like clarity to the flavor profile. It has a lively sweetness like candied ginger and a sparkling champagne-like finish.
Direct from the sourcing team who made this coffee possible, Red Fox Coffee Merchants: “After 11 years of loving Nano Challa, we’re pleased to welcome Nano Genji, Nano Challa’s sibling mill, into the Agaro family. Historically once of the most coveted coffees in all of Western Ethiopia, Nano Challa membership did such an amazing job with production and processing that the tremendous premiums they were receiving caused their membership to swell to a level that pushed their capacity as far as it could go. This year, they opened Nano Genji a few miles away with brand new Penagos equipment. In 2009 when Aleco first traveled to meet the people behind the Nano Challa cooperatives, their coffees were going into the marketplace undifferentiated and undervalued. Aleco saw the unique character of their coffee and invested in developing relationships with its producers, which have grown stronger to this day.
