Every spring we eagerly await freshly harvested coffees from around the world.  The last few years, we've been able to rely on a super clean and juicy natural processed Grade 1 Guji from Sidama, Ethiopia. A reference to "Ardipithecus ramidus", a fossil of early human kind discovered in Ethiopia, Ardi is an heirloom variety brought to us by Keffa Coffee and their partners in Sidama, Ethiopia who "ensure care and quality in the processing, sorting, storing, and shipping of this special coffee."

Ardi has deservedly become one of Keffa's flagship coffees, as each harvest continues to bring clean, sweet berry notes, bittersweet chocolate and pleasant florality in the cup. We love it for the accessibility of easy to ID flavors, and also for the way it showcases both the coffee's variety and it's processing.

Ardi is the result of many small farmers growing coffee 1750-1950masl, who have brought their coffees to mill where hundreds of workers to sort out cherries for quality.  The coffee is dried on raised beds for 8-10 days, rotated every 30 hours.
