Drop by quickly to sample this lovely micro-lot Ethiopian Ardi Natural before it’s gone!

A rich velvety body carries tremendous berry notes. Look for blackberry, blueberry, a hint of sweet lemon and dried fruits. A sweet chocolate note rounds out the long finish. Yum!

Ardi is named after the oldest human skeleton ever found (4.4 million years old). This natural processed Heirloom Varietal coffee is grown in the Guji region of Sidama by a group of about 90 farmers at an altitude of 1800 meters. Drying coffee cherries in the fruit on raised drying beds, brings a wonderful fruitiness to the coffee. This differs from other dry-process Ethiopia coffees, which are often picked at the end of the crop and bagged prematurely before being properly and fully dried.
