Sisters Coffee sources the Ardi through our friend Sam at Keffa Coffee Importers out of Baltimore Maryland. The Ardi is sourced from small farm-holders surrounding the Adola washing station outside of Kirbe Mengist. Farmers have small plots of coffee, sometimes not even a single hectare, as a cash crop to supplement their income. The coffee trees often grows wildly on a farmers property. The Ardi is grown around 1800 meters above sea level (MASL). The Ardi is a naturally processed coffee, a unique harvesting method that draws out the fruitiness inherent to this coffee and also conservers water. Once harvested the coffee is dried on raised beds. While drying the coffee is turned to ensure it dries evenly. Overripe and under ripe cherries are sorted out as the coffee is on the beds.

Our roast highlights vibrant fruity flavors & sweet floral notes. Ardi Natural was the first coffee offered in the Sisters Coffee single origin roaster series and became a favorite among customers and employees alike. We are pleased to offer it again for the fourth year in a row.
