Roasts & ships Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday
In Sidamo, Ethiopia it is common to have dry-processed coffee that presents itself with a burst of flavor. But rarely is a particular coffee so sweet, so balanced and yet so clean. The Ardi is dry processed coffee (often referred to as natural processed), meaning the beans are dried with the coffee fruit still intact, allowing the natural flavors of the coffee cherry to soak into th
e bean. The mill is managed carefully assuring the beans never touch the ground and are turned regularly to achieve even drying.
This past year, Ryan had the opportunity to visit the cooperative and see the process first hand. He found the process to be quite meticulous; Ripe cherries are picked, and then dried on raised beds for the next 3 weeks. During the entire 3 weeks of drying, workers sort through the beds every single day, assuring that underipe coffee cherries don't make their way into the final product. During this time the coffee is raked constantly for even drying and also covered by tarps in the evening and when threatened by rain to assure the drying cycle is not disturbed.
Since 2010 we have purchased the Ardi and it continues to be a huge hit. This year we are proud to be offering an exclusive small selection that was specially prepared just for us at Madcap from the Kercha Cooperative. Perfecting the dry processed coffee is certainly the focus at Kercha and that focus is apparent in the cup. We have found the Ardi from Kercha to offer a burst of flavor and aromatics containing strawberry, honey and milk chocolate.
