About This Coffee:
This coffee comes to you from the same producer's as Scotty D's Jamaican Blue Mountain. Bardot Coffee USA in Tustin, CA. They specialize in roasting and serving top tier coffees.
Ardi honors origins. Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of the coffee tree, and the place where human evolution began. This uniquely sweet, heirloom variety coffee is named for the Ardipithecus ramidus, an important early human fossil discovered in Ethiopia. The Sidama region's rich soil lends rich nutrients and deep color to its coffee. 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 the local mill, hundreds of skillful workers sort the cherries. The coffee is placed on raised beds for 8-10 days and is rotated every 30 minutes to promote even drying. It is then finished on concrete patios for 2 - 3 days. This careful attention to the natural drying process ensures each bean carries the full distinctive Ardi flavors and aromatics.
