It took about three days of waiting after roasting for this coffee to develop a rich flavor. I was worried after waiting 24 hours that it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. However, I’m very happy with the deep, slightly sweet flavor and aroma it has.
First, thank you for saving my previous review! The Ethopian names are a bit difficult to dechiper and they change slightly, hard to keep them straight. So seeing my review last year was extremely helpful. Last year I said this was great. Since then, I've bought another 5 lbs; then 10 lbs, today, another 5 lbs. We do about 1 1/4 lbs per week. Medium roast; makes great straight espresso and also fantastic drip too. I did and have bought other beans, but having a known consistant quality bean is extremely useful. Sincerely hope this helps someone.
An excellent offering. The jasmine and berry are superb and easy to pick-up in the cup. I roasted these in Behmor with no issue. Used the following profile on my 1600+: preheat to 275, double-drum, Manual P5 mode until first crack, drop to P3. Tastes delicious and can’t wait to drink more
If you are a fan of the Ethiopian heirloom bean flavor, Sidama Ardi is for you. I went with Full City (average), pan roasted. Currently sipping nearly three day old, tepid coffee and it tastes wonderful thanks to the distinctive heirloom bean taste. Sidama Ardi is definitely a top-tier Ethiopian coffee bean!
