Nano Challa sits in the Jimma region, home to one of the last remaining rainforests in Ethiopia. Coffee grows wild here, protected by the forests and collected by the farmers of the cooperative. The microclimates of the rainforest and the genetic diversity of plants several generations old bring forth a cup bursting with all of the best fruited and tea-like qualities we’ve come to expect - heirloom coffee varieties from Ethiopia hold 99% of genetic material in comparison to the rest of the world’s varieties; complexity is almost a given here! We get so many great tasting notes out of this one: honeysuckle aromatics, strawberry jam, lemon candy, and a sweet marshmallow finish. Perfect for the start of summer!

NOTES ON BREWING

Like most high-grown coffees, Ethiopian coffees have a pretty high density going for them. Letting this coffee rest a little bit longer - we preferred six days off roast - will really bring out its jammy sweetness.
