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 avourful. 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 overripe 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 nal drying on a concrete patio.
A Grade 1 coffee this is the best example of the changing and fun avors a coffee can present year to year
What impact is your cup of coffee making?
Our coffees are sourced based on seasonal freshness from Central and South America, Asia Pacific, and Africa. We roast our coffees in small batches 5-6 days each week to ensure that we are delivering the freshest coffee possible to our customers. Each coffee is carefully tested and scored to ensure that our customers get the best coffee available.
We carefully source our coffees from farms around the world. We value the relationships we have with our farmers and we want to continue to support the same farms and families over time. Our consistent business helps them grow their business and their quality. This in turn means that the longer we work with them, the better they can support their families and communities. When you buy a cup of coffee from us, you support these small farmers and their communities.
