This is the Ethiopia Ardi brought to you by Portola Coffee Roasters. This naturally processed coffee was grown by the Kilenso Moconissa in the Sidama region of Ethiopia between 1,750 - 1,950 meters above sea level. The cup has notes of honeysuckle florals complemented by fruity notes of strawberries and blackberries with a milk chocolate sweet finish.
Was ok as a cortado, but could never get dialed in as espresso. Too much acidity.
I really enjoyed the light and floral flavors.
Delicious and fruity, very light roast with even stronger fruit flavor as the coffee cools

Too fruity for me.
Light acidity, berry notes, earthy delicious.
So dang good.
Sweet with the taste of juice and candy under the milk. A bit intense for straight espresso. Great as short americano! Like it
Well balanced, fruity.
excellent and intricate
Very good brew. Notes of chocolate and fruits abound.
We really enjoyed this one. We did it as a hario v60 pour over! Highly recommend.
Smooth, well balanced
Amazing coffee! I'm generally a fan of natural Ethiopians, but this one's better than most that I've had. Strawberry notes along with a mellow chocolate sweetness. I'm really enjoying this one.
One of the better coffees we've received.
Always excellent, complex Ethiopian roasts from Portola.
The notes on this are spot on, and it's much better than expected. This is very aromatically berry. I loved it!
Awesome cup of coffee! Definate hits of strawberry with delicious chocolate flavor that lingers long after you've finished.
Really enjoyable, a smooth, delicately fruity and lightly acid mouthful, that lingers on with a pleasant aftertaste. I couldn't detect the chocolate mentioned in the description. It is only my preference to be hit hard by a coffee rather than cajoled that makes this a 4* instead of a 5*.
This one is awesome. It's smooth. It's fruity. I like this quite a bit.
Definitely a bright cup from the start! Fruity acidity leads into sweeter berry finish. The brightness bounces between blackberry and a pop of lemon, with subtler juicier berry notes developing as the cup cools. Well-balanced and enjoyable!
Fruity and chocolaty just like the description. Delicious
This had a great balance
Not as bright as expected,
Oooo so pungent & absolutely delicious. Description nails it on the head.
I agree with the other review. This is a very light and fruity coffee. I am picking up more of a blueberry flavor than strawberry. I am enjoying this coffee very much so far!
I never received this coffee
very very fruity coffee. Brews well with the Kalita, I think that chocolate is a misnomer in terms of flavor. I can't pull it out of the coffee and it's not listed on the bag either. Overall, solid coffee. This rating my alternate between a 4 and 5. After the next few cups.
