Nucleus Coffee Lab - Gesha Village Chaka

We take immense pride in introducing Nucleus Coffee Lab's newest roasting project, Nucleus Coffee Lab: Chaka Edition. Originating from the fertile volcanic soils of Ethiopia's renowned Gesha Village, Chaka coffee embodies a rich heritage and an exquisite range of qualities that distinguishes it from conventional beans.

A Journey Back to the Origins

Embarking on a journey to the sacred grounds of Gesha Village in Ethiopia, the very birthplace of coffee, is an experience of unmatched significance. Situated at elevations of up to 2,100 meters above sea level, Gesha Village stands not only as a farm but also as a cornerstone of exceptional coffee. The distinctive geography and climate prevailing in this region provide an optimal environment for cultivating the most exquisite coffee beans.

Coffee Profile

The Chaka is a blend of varieties including the Gesha coffee bean. It is recognized for its extraordinary taste, characterized by floral notes combined with succulent tropical fruit and honey undertones. This Gesha Village Chaka Coffee stands out with a light body and high acidity, highlighted by its intricate, sweet, and aromatic flavor profile. 

Nucleus Coffee Lab

Driven by the need to revolutionize coffee consumption, we have embarked on a project to exclusively utilize electric roasters, departing from the prevalent use of gas roasters. Our mission is to promote transparency in the coffee industry, seamlessly blending traditions with cutting-edge innovations to craft an unparalleled coffee experience.

Let us take you back to the heart of Nucleus, where it all began—a charming, bustling coffee shop. It was within these warm and inviting walls that we embarked on a remarkable journey, immersing ourselves in the artistry of coffee making. Day after day, behind the bustling counter, we tirelessly honed our skills, passionately exploring the subtleties of brewing a truly exceptional cup of coffee.

At the core of our coffee philosophy lies transparency, quality, and consistency. We uphold rigorous standards for evaluating coffee, employing meticulous tasting protocols to guarantee that every batch fulfills our exacting requirements.

Getting into Roasting

Over time, our passion for coffee evolved into an insatiable quest for knowledge. Beyond mastering the art of brewing, we found ourselves captivated by the origins and untapped potential of the coffee bean. This burning curiosity ignited a deep yearning to explore the craft of roasting, paving the way for our remarkable transition from talented baristas to devoted artisan roasters.

Transparency and Perfection

At the core of our coffee philosophy lies transparency, quality, and consistency. We uphold rigorous standards for evaluating coffee, employing meticulous tasting protocols to guarantee that every batch fulfills our exacting requirements.

Upon arrival at our roasting facility, each batch of beans is subjected to a precise roasting process. We make minute adjustments to the roast profiles, continuously tasting and refining until we capture the unique story and flavor profile inherent in every bean.

Embracing Sustainability: The Backbone of their Business

With a commitment to sustainability, we acknowledge its pivotal role in shaping the future of coffee production. Our investment in an electric roaster underscores our dedication to reducing our carbon footprint. Harnessing this advanced technology allows us to create extraordinary coffee while making significant strides towards environmental conservation.
