As a tribute to the region’s history of human and coffee evolution, Ardi is named for the early hominin fossil, Ardipithecus ramidus. Throughout sorting, where the batches of dried coffee are scrupulously searched for under or overripe cherries, harvests of Ardi fruit are handled with just as much care as their archaeological namesake. The coffee is sun dried on raised beds for 8-10 days and rotated every half hour to ensure even drying. Following the time spent under the sun, the coffee completes the drying stage during a final 2-3 day period on concrete patios creating a full-bodied coffee with a sweet profile that reflects the fertile soil of Ethiopia’s southern Sidama region.
