Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi is a bean that is dry processed under careful care of the exporter. After being hand picked, it's dried on raised beds in the sunlight for three weeks while careful sorting of the under-ripe cherry is continued by skillful workers. This coffee is named Ardi as a tribute to the oldest human skelton ever found (4.4 million years old!), which was discovered in the arid badlands near Ethiopia's Awash River in 1994.

Such a unique bean - it's bright, clean, but so complex. Not too dark and it has a great acidity to it that is very refreshing. This is a bean I will be buying often! Also, shipping was so quick and the roast was so fresh.

I have tried coffee from many small-batch roasters, but Qualia is my favorite! My fiance and I have ordered it time and time again. The owner is OBSESSED with coffee and it comes through in the quality. The Sidamo has a rich, interesting flavor.

This bean is my personal favorite, my everyday brew. The freshness of the roast and its quality are exceptional
