Expect a massive amount of chocolate and caramelized sugars brightened with a juicy acidity reminiscent of pluots. As the cup cools, the chocolate begins to turn creamy while praline sweetness leaves a lingering finish.
Back for a second year! While we love bringing on new coffees, our favorite scenario is when we find a producer group that aligns with our values who we can partner with long-term. ACODIHUE’s Manos de Mujer group is a perfect example of that. Located in Huehuetenango, a coffee-growing region in western Guatemala. ACODIHUE has obtained the certification Manos de Mujer (Women's Hands) through which the co-op acknowledges their contribution to their household and to the national economy.
Expect a massive amount of chocolate and caramelized sugars brightened with a juicy acidity reminiscent of perfectly ripe pears. The finish is filled with butter toffee and juicy stone fruits ranging from peach to apricot. Perfectly sessionable!
Currently comprised of 2 of our favorite Limited Release offerings: Ethiopia Nano Challa & Peru El Chasqui. In an effort to put together everything we love about an outstanding espresso, great development of mouthfeel and sweetness while maintaining the integrity of acidity of our single origin offerings, "Coast to Coast" was born.
Ripe tropical fruits blended with sweet melon saturate the aromatics and flavor profile of this cup. We taste papaya, melon, and mango wrapped in a rounded cup finishing with a lingering orange creamsicle sweetness.
Direct from the sourcing team who made this coffee possible, Red Fox Coffee Merchants , here is the story behind this legendary coffee: “2019 is an exciting year for Nano Challa. Historically one of the most coveted coffees in all of Western Ethiopia. In 2009 when Aleco first traveled to meet the people behind the Nano Challa cooperatives, their coffees were owing into the marketplace undifferentiated and undervalued. Once USAID’s Technoserve project, which focused on improving African coffee farmers’ lives by helping them get better prices for their coffee, established the Nano Challa washing station, Aleco saw the unique character of their coffee and invested in developing relationships with its producers, which have grown stronger to this day."
