Ritual Roasters Sweet Tooth Espresso – Nano Challa, Ethiopa
In Western Oromia, Ethiopia 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 sweetness, ﬂorality, and pleasant herbal notes. As an espresso, the tart, juicy ﬂavors of juniper berry and watermelon come to the forefront, with a smooth toﬀee-like ﬁnish!
