Ardi Scored 93 Points!

Ethiopian Sidamo Ardi scored 93 points by coffee review. Ken Davids described this coffee as a "sweet fruit ferment influences a deep, brandied chocolate and cherry character in both aroma and cup. Round, lush acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The brandied chocolate/cherry notes carry straight into an expansive short finish; a hint of salty astringency develops in the long, though still softened by a ringingly sweet fruit."


Add It To The 90+ List
Right Off The Roaster!

Our fairly new Sumatra Bodhi Peaberry just scored 91 points by Coffee Review. Ken noted this delightful Sumatra with "aromatic hints of berry-like fruit mix with aromatic wood and a deep, molasses-like sweetness. Rich acidity, continuing sweetness and cedary wood in the cup, rounding toward a ripe peach. The flavor mutes but hangs on in the sweet finish."

Davids classified the ancient Mocha-Java blend as "intense aroma: brandyish fermented fruit, sweet-toned flowers and aromatic wood. In the cup richly balanced; delicate fruit and floral top notes with deeper hints of earth, brandy-toned chocolate and aromatic wood."
