Discover the story: Genji Challa

For the second year in a row on the Pista menu, we present the Genji Challa. This coffee comes to us from the Telila washing station located in Kecho Anderacha in the Jimma region, Ethiopia.


This young washing station has only been in existence for 4 years but is operated by a very experienced team headed by our partner Mike Mamo. Quality control and innovation are the priorities of this station. One of its particularities, and what makes it unique, is that it separates the batches as soon as they arrive by Kebele (neighborhood). This allows very precise traceability of the coffee cherries it receives. This is a rare way of doing things in Ethiopia where in the majority of cases, producers bring their cherries to a washing station and they are sorted by the processing method. The batches are then simply identified with the name of the washing station. This relationship with the Telila station was made possible thanks to our import partner Osito Coffee.


Mike and his team receive coffee cherries from 3 different Kebele at this station: Genji Challa, Gera and Kolla. Cultivated at an altitude of around 2000 meters, this coffee is made up of the 74112 (Serto) variety. This variety was selected by JARC (Jimma Agricultural Research Center) in 1979 for its resistance to certain diseases, as well as for its high sensory potential. First, it is picked at full maturity and sorted by floating, then by hand. , in order to remove overripe or underripe cherries. It is then partially pulped using a mechanical pulper, then immersed in water for 24 to 36 hours. Finally, it is passed under a stream of water to remove the remaining mucilage, before being spread on raised beds for 10 to 14 days for slow and even drying. Slightly tangy, it can be enjoyed both as an espresso and as a filter, offering a delicate espresso or a complex filter.


This floral coffee has tasting notes of peach and black tea, with a texture reminding us of honey.
