Note: If “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, then Genji Challa is the proverbial apple to Nano Challa’s tree. The dry fragrance smells super sweet with floral honey coming to mind in both light and middle roasts, long with dried stone fruit, orange peel, and clove spice. The wet aromatics have a saturated honey smell, and breaking through the crust releases a pectin sweetness that brings to mind orange marmalade. The underlying sweetness in the brewed cup has flavor aspects of clover honey, which leads into layered fruit flavors that go from sweet stone fruit flesh to the bittering fruit skin. Lighter roasts are accented by orange peel and a complex herbal/rue aroma. Full City roast cast a bittersweet shadow on the lush stone fruited flavors and accented by kaffir lime, and tangy citrus-like acidity. Talk about a versatile Ethiopia. Dark roasting cannot hold back the complex fruit in Genji Challa’s cup profile.
