This is the naturally-processed version of our 2020 Good Food Awards Winner (Ethiopia Ardi Organic Washed)! From the Good Food Foundation: "For a long time, certifications for responsible practices and awards for superior taste have remained distinct – one honors social and environmental responsibility, while the other celebrates craftsmanship and flavor. The Good Food Awards recognizes that truly good food – the kind that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities – contains all of these ingredients."

As you might expect from the award-winning washed version, this is an excellent natural. We are tasting plenty of the same peach, lemon, and florals that we find in the washed Ardi, but the dense & sweet blueberry & grape notes dominate the flavor profile. A classic Ethiopia natural profile, if you will. It was imported by our good friend Samuel Demisse, founder of Keffa Coffee, who was born and raised in Ethiopia. 

From Keffa:

Soil Type: Red clay, fertile, and rich in organic matter of new land.
