IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
Nano Genji is a group of farmers that work in the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia. They are part of a large co-op named Kata Maduga which includes other groups such as the well known Nano Challa, Kedamai and Biftu Gudina. This coffee really stands out among the coffees we tasted from Kata Maduga and it will be the only one we feature from Agaro this year!

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from Jun 21 to Jul 12, 2020 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Probat UG-22 roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
