ABOUT THE COFFEE

Ethiopia Genji Chala

In the last fifteen years, thanks to a collaboration between USAID, private investment, and on-the-ground entrepreneurship, the Agaro region in Ethiopia’s southwestern Jimma Zone has become a powerhouse in the production of high-quality washed coffees. Today, the Kata Maduga Union leads the region’s top washing stations.

Genji Chala is an expansion of the well-established Nano Chala wet mill. Together, these sister stations purchase from a collective comprising more than 630 farmer members. By employing water-efficient Penagos pulpers, they manage to process an immense quantity of coffee each harvest season. This year’s crop is a sublime testament to their commitment to quality, and we’re grateful to have such a vibrant lot.
