Tasting Notes: Bergamot, Rosemary, White Tea, Biscotti
One of the cornerstones of the Night Swim Coffee menu are fresh Ethiopian coffees that arrive every summer from our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants. These historic and storied lots from the Agaro region of Ethiopia showcase the complexity, acidity, and florality that we’ve grown to expect from fresh Ethiopian coffees. We’re more thrilled than ever to offer a lot from Nano Genji - our first time buying from the co-op. Nano Genji is a part of the Kata Muduga Union, a union of 39 co-ops and washing stations that focus on quality coffees and paying dividends directly to the Union members.
Nano Genji is the sibling mill to the famed Nano Challa mill, featured on our menu last year. Historically one of the most coveted coffees in all of Western Ethiopia, Nano Challa membership did such an amazing job with production and processing that the tremendous premiums they were receiving caused their membership to swell to a level that pushed their capacity as far as it could go. In 2021, they opened Nano Genji a few miles away with brand new Penagos equipment along with dozens of drying beds to accommodate their growing membership. With 630 members between the two washing stations, they’re looking forward to continued growth and success.
This lot, #8, from Nano Genji is delicate, nuanced, expressive, and absolutely delicious. It’s reminding us of floral white tea and bergamot with a deep and lasting, caramel like sweetness
