Black berry, honey, orange
This seasonal coffee hit the spot when brewing with my Kalita Wave. I love to taste so many varieties of flavors that come from Ethiopia. This particular lot gave me notes of blackberry, honey, and orange. The Black berry is very up front, followed by a blast of sweetness, ending in a nice acidic tone that carries orange with it. This makes a lovely pour over, and I can see this also making fantastic espresso and drip.
Nano Challa is a smaller cooperative coffee mill near Gera town in the Jimma region, Western Ethiopia. (The area also has some of the finest honey available in Ethiopia). This is from a collection site 2km from the original Nano Challa station called “Genji Challa”. Being so close, they extend their farmer reach some, but also buy from many of the same coop members (deliveries can be made to either). The farms are at altitudes between 1900 to 2100 meters, planted in old regional varieties of coffee.
