In western Oromia, there is a small region known as the Gera District. Back in 2004, just after Ethiopia started relaxing the regulation of their coffee exchange, the local producers of this area organized themselves into a cooperative to better market and export their amazing coffees to roasters around the world. Calling themselves Nano Challa, the cooperative is now over 400 growers strong. The coffees from the Nano Challa cooperative hail from traditionally grown heirloom varieties, cultivated under some of the last remaining rainforest canopies in Ethiopia. This lot is a washed offering, showcasing all of the clean complexity this coffee has to offer. Look for a balanced, structured cup with complex sweetness, florality, and pleasant herbal notes.
