This coffee comes to us from the Nano Genji mill of the Jimma Zone. Established in 2019, Nano Genji is the sibling mill to the famous Nano Challa cooperative, one of the most coveted sources of coffee in Ethiopia for the last 12 years. Backed by historical knowledge and processing expertise, Nano Genji has been able to continue to serve producers in the community with the same level of quality and care as its’ predecessor.
The high elevations, steep mountains, and bountiful shade trees are the natural habitat for coffee to thrive. Coffee from the Jimma Zone typically has a delicious flavor profile of citrus, stone fruit, and black tea; and the Nano Genji does not disappoint. Vibrant and juicy, this lot from Nano Genji is serving up bold red fruit and citrus, without losing the delicate florality we love about washed Ethiopian coffee. It hits your senses with juicy pomegranate and a sweet Meyer lemon. As it finishes you are left with the bold florals of earl gray tea and the delicate sweetness of passion fruit.
