As you know, we enjoy celebrating the unique flavors of each origin and are ecstatic to have info regarding the varietal from Samuel, the owner of Keffa Coffee.
Our Sidama Guiji Ardi is an heirloom varietal grown at an elevation of 1900M from the Biru Bekele Mill.
Samuel named Natural Sidama Guji Ardi after the oldest human skeleton ever found (4.4 million years old) in Ethiopia. Ardi is naturally processed coffee under exporter's care. After it is hand-picked it is dried on a raised bed in the sun for three weeks. During the drying process, skillful laborers work around the clock to sort and remove under-ripe coffee cherries.
