Reviewed by Coffee Review in September 2021, our Ethiopia Sidama Ardi scored an incredible 95 point review! Read the review here.

We are pleased to present a long time favorite, Ardi a coffee that is grown in Southern Ethiopia’s Guji Zone. Coffee farming is the main source of income for the approximately 3,000 people who live in this area and contribute the coffee that makes up Ardi. We had the privilege of visiting the farmers who produce Ardi and see first-hand the high quality, oversight and care that goes into this natural sun-dried coffee. Our visits have resulted in a strong relationship that has led to our purchase of this clean and fruity coffee every year since 2013.

The inspiration behind this coffee’s name comes from the discovery of Ardipithecus Ramidus, the oldest hominid skeleton ever found. The fossil, dubbed Ardi, is 4.4 million years old and was unearthed in Ethiopia’s Great Rift Valley, which is where the Guji Zone lies and this coffee is grown. Sweet, fruity natural processed Ethiopian coffees such as this often change people’s perception of what coffee can taste like; similarly Ardipithecus Ramidus has changed the perception of human evolution, as it is believed the species could be a link between modern humans and our distant ancestors.

Roast Magazine's 2010 Roaster of The Year Award Winner!

Equator's commitment to a sustainable, transparent approach spans more than two decades. Today, Equator operates nine cafes predominantly in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration honored Equator by naming Equator the "National Small Business of the Year." Since their founding, Equator has been a leader in sustainability and social responsibility. In 2011, they formalized their commitment to sustainability by becoming a certified B Corporation, making it the first California coffee roaster to do so. Equator’s philosophy on coffee is built from a question: how do they create value from their perch in the coffee supply chain, standing at the intersection between local and distant coffee communities? It is this question that continues to frame their narrative as they strive to grow a business that values the stakeholders in both communities with respect for the people, the process, and the product. Equator believes that quality underlies economic and environmental sustainability, and this is the pillar of our approach. They support environmentally sound certifications, as well as practices that produce the highest quality coffee while securing a dignified life for those who produce it.
