The Nano Challa cooperative is found in the Agaro district in mid-western Ethiopia. Their 400 member farmers founded the cooperative in 2010. The management is strong and therefore they succeeded to produce highest quality from year one.

The farmers bring the coffee cherries to the two washing stations where they are sorted by hand to remove under-ripe and over-ripe cherries. After the sorting the cherries are pulped and soaked under water for 8 hours before they are carefully rinsed until completely clean. The wastewater is filtered through Vetiver grass before it goes back into nature. The coffee is hand sorted again after being washed to remove impurities and defects. Dried on raised beds for about 10 days.

This coffee is the result of a Technoserve project that is meant to increase the quality of the coffee and prices for the farmers through a transparent and sustainable system. They are helping with setting up the washing stations and new cooperative structures. This has so far contributed to a significant increase in payment for the 126 producers.

We are very excited to support this project and even more excited to be able to offer this extraordinary coffee.
