We have the newly arrived crop from Ethiopia, known collectively as Nano Challa, named after the associated washing station. A washing station is a facility where farmers who are members of the cooperative bring their harvested and ripe coffee cherries to be dried or depulped (fruit separated from the coffee seed) and partly processed before being sent off to dry mills for final processing, grading, selling and exporting. This last year the cooperative set up a second washing station, bringing the total member of farmers between the two stations to 630. Nano Challa is historically one of the most coveted coffees in all of Western Ethiopia. Our importer for this coffee, Red Fox, was founded by the former green buyer at Stumptown and has over 10 plus years relationship with this cooperative and as such has the right to first selection in the region. Red Fox scored this coffee at 91 points (out of 100). This is a washed processed coffee (versus natural or dried). We found notes of Juniper, Meyer Lemon, Toffee, Black Tea, Melon, and Midori; with a persistence sweetness throughout all temperatures of the cup. Thank you and enjoy!
