Description

A complex & sweet cup that bursts with an array of berry fruit notes which increase as the cup cools; supported with cocoa, florals and a juicy finish.

"The Sidama region’s fertile soil lends rich nutrients and deep color to its coffee. Good weather means good coffee. And this year’s harvest of Ardi is bountiful and flavourful thanks to healthy rainfall during the growing season.

There are few views as striking as a hillside washing station with more than 300 raised beds full of crimson cherries drying in the sun. After small farmers harvest their coffee and bring it to their local mill, hundreds of skillful workers continue to sort out over-ripe and under-ripe cherries. The coffee dries on raised beds for 8-10 days and is rotated every 30 minutes to promote even drying. The time spent on the raised beds is complemented by 2-3 days of final drying on a concrete patio."
