Sidama is one of the most recognised and celebrated regions for high quality naturally processed coffees in Ethiopia.

About 60 miles south of the famous small town of Yirgacheffe there is a town called Hagere Maryam. All of the Ardi coffee comes from one mill in this town. This is a natural processed coffee, which helps to yield the super typical berry and floral characteristics that are found in the cup.

In order to control the drying process of this coffee it is first dried for two weeks on raised beds in the sun. The coffee is sorted by hand as it dries. Any under-ripe cherry (green in colour) stands in stark contrast to all the red cherries on the bed. All the under-ripe cherries are removed, and after two weeks, the coffee is set to dry on a concrete patio.
