The Ethiopian Genji Challa Coffee is a floral grown coffee sourced from Jimma, a zone in southwestern Ethiopia under the large Oromia region. This specific lot of coffee is brimming with a bright but balanced acidity, a light juicy mouthfeel, and impeccable sweetness. The Genji Challa site where the coffee is processed utilizes a Penagos pulper and de-mucilager for producing their washed coffee. The coffee beans are dried on raised beds for 9-14 days depending on weather. Unlike coffee producers in Sidama, Guji, or Yirgacheffe, farms in Gera ( a district in Jimma) tend to mostly be what is known as semi-forest coffee production sites. In this production system, the forest canopy is pruned back, and the under-brush is cleared for coffee. While much is cleared for coffee in this production system, semi-forest production does maintain a fair amount of plant diversity and healthy upper canopy.
