Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of coffee. This particular coffee from Ethiopia was named to honor origins, specifically Ardipithecus ramidus, an early human fossil discovered in Ethiopia. This is Keffa Coffee's trademark coffee since 2009, working and partnering with producers in the Sidama Zone to process, sort, store, and ship their coffees. The region's rich soil growing heirloom coffee varieties combined with the traditional sun-dried natural process honors the country's deep history and connection to coffee, and we're proud to share it with you. Lightly roasted to highlight notes of red berry, hibiscus, and chocolate.
