Ethiopia Genji Challa – 10 oz
Genji Challa is a cooperative that produces highly anticipated Western Ethiopian coffees each year. Popular for their wet process coffees, they’ve recently started producing dry process as well. The whole coffee cherries are floated in water to remove any “floaters” – underripe coffee that is lower quality – before moving to raised beds to finish drying over the course of about two weeks. The co-op was formed as part of an initiative to aid farmers in a more comprehensive way, but they have since “graduated” from this and are now part of an independent, local Union who assist the cooperatives with functions like marketing, exporting, and general representation on an international scale.
Cupping Notes: Layers of fruited flavors interspersed by rustic sweeteners, cherry, fruit jam, berry fruit leather and apricot fruit nectar.
