The Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi was carefully roasted for you by Parisi Artisan Coffee. Straight from the birthplace of coffee, full natural coffees from the Guji subregion of Sidamo in Ethiopia are highly prized. This coffee was grown at an altitude of 1,700 - 1,900 meters by various small producers from the Guji Washing Station and consists of Ethiopian heirloom varieties. This coffee is juicy with a mix of fruity and chocolate flavors.
This coffee was the best coffee I've gotten from Mistobox. Balanced flavor, nice sweet aroma, and great overall taste. Will definitely buy again!
Do like. The two Sidamo Ardi coffees I've gotten in the Mistobox experience have been by far my favorites.
It's been a while since I had a juicy cup of coffee since most of the previous ones were bold or balanced. I enjoy the light mouthfeel and the fruity and chocolate flavors of this coffee. Ethiopian coffees are becoming one of my favorites.
Thanks for this :) The blueberry notes were really prevalent for the first 20-30 minutes after brew. Later in the day it turned super citrusy which was delicious as well, but so different from the berry!
Excellent, very smooth and does not leave a bitting or bitter taste.
I absolutely loved this coffee-- my favorite to-date that I've received so far through Mistobox. The notes of blueberries were so pleasant and truly made this roast memorable.
Very juicy with notes of strawberry and chocolate. Really enjoyed this cup.
Nice chocolate taste with some fruity tones.
Really nice and balanced flavor. Lots of depth. Would like it to have slightly higher brighter notes. Minor drawback. Somewhat muddy flavor at times
Love this coffee. It starts with a chocolate note and finishes with a citrus taste. Syrupy which i like a lot.
I didn't like this much - I have tried 2 different brewing techniques on the Technivorm as well as adjusting the grind size in order to bring out the elusive chocolate flavor so that the intense citrus/fruity tart flavors will be more balanced and not overpowering. I have also tried using Kalita Wave 155 which usually works well with light and bright coffee. I definitely did not like this coffee as much as the last coffee pick. The aftertaste had a hint of tart rhubarb which I did not enjoy and it lingered. If you like bright citrus flavored coffee, you will love this coffee.
I was excited for this coffee because I've previously really enjoyed MadCap's Ardi. However, this coffee is quite different. It is less juicy than the MadCap Ardi. It is definitely smooth and chocolately, but lacks a fruity burst.
Less flavor than I would like
Much better than the first one. It may have been slightly lighter of a bean than she typically likes, but much better direction. Her favorite flavor she used to add was hazelnut.
My favorite bean of all time ... probably forever.

This coffee is as bad as the first one was good. Very bland tasting.
This tasted a bit metallic and lighter than I expected.
This coffee was a bit bold for my taste. Depending on how we brewed it we found it had a more or less syrupy taste. I found that I was not drinking all of my cups of coffee, which is rare for me!
I prefer my previous coffee. This one is a bit too acidic for my taste, but I appreciate the flavor notes.
I love the richness of this one. The chocolate really comes through and it's super smooth. I'm not getting any bitterness.
The berry flavors were very strong in this coffee. I enjoyed the berry and chocolate notes of the coffee. The downside was I found the cup to be roasty and a lot fuller whereas I think the brighter coffees are more pleasing.
Papaya, mango, lemon curd, gentle spices.
i enjoyed the fruity notes.
This coffee seemed to have somewhat of vinegar taste that lingered after a few sips. I did not experience and fruity or chocolate flavors.
Really like the citrus levels of this coffee. Big flavor without being overpowering.
So yummy. Better than previous
Strong scent of berries. Strong and complex flavor profile front loaded with blueberry and strawberry.
Overall we really enjoyed this one. Before even tasting the coffee, we could smell the strawberry jam and chocolate. Upon tasting, the notes of chocolate shadowed the other flavors a little more than the scent had hinted at but still, it was a delicious cup. Definitely loving the Ethiopian coffees you are sending me!
I hate to not love this Ethiopian coffee but this one just isn't one of my favorites. I'm sure some will love it and some will not. I personally don't care for the sour aftertaste and it doesn't bloom much which means it isn't fresh.
Definitely into the Ethiopian one.
A little bitter for me
I really like this choice for me! EXTREMELY smooth, fruity nuances, and tastes delicious in a side-by-side comparison with other coffees. Nice aftertaste. The bit of dry sour acidity is the only bit I didn't enjoy. I might like to try a deeper dried fruit taste in a coffee to compare.
Best coffee I had from Misto Box thus far. I've already suggested this blend to others. The mouth-feel and body on this coffee was phenomenal. The fruity esters were strong, but well balanced.
Very nice berry flavor with chocolate notes also present. Light body, juicy mouthfeel, present but pleasant acidity. Brewed with v60 and chemex...preferred this through the V60.
Super fruity and not overly-acidic. Tasted a bit aged. Natural processed coffees aren't my go-to, but I like them on occasion. Enjoyable but not my favorite.
I can certainly appreciate what this coffee is trying to do. It's light, sour, and smells of intense fruity notes with light beans; however, it's a miss for me.The French Roast Fair Trade Organic you previously sent was more in the direction I'm trying to go. I know I mentioned before that I wanted a more complex coffee, and you certainly sent one, but light brews simply aren't enjoyable for me. With this Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi, I wasn't sure if I was drinking coffee or a fruity hot tea. I wasn't able to pick up on any chocolate notes, but could tell there was plenty of fruit notes.Let's stay on the dark side (haha) of the coffee world. Brews with smoky, bitter, roasty, dark chocolate, or even one fruit note (not a fruit basket like this Ethiopia) would be more along the lines of what I'm interested in.Thanks!
Amazing coffee. Very aromatic with a significant blueberry taste.
I liked this one a lot. Was really really slow getting here took over a week so had bad opinion going in but when it came to just the coffee it was pretty delicious. Even throughout flavor.
Earthy and great taste. Doesn't taste bitter or have much acidity I thought it will.
Very drinkable for pour over. A little acidic/fruity, but a nice change.
Very good coffee, slightly mild
Lightly roasted, yet not overpowered with citrus notes. As espresso via a semiautomatic machine, it has a nice subdued brightness and is kind of toasty, a mild flavor overall, which is enjoyable however leaves something to be desired in the deep chocolately notes found in a darker roast, which to me simply makes it more of a morning coffee than an evening one. Makes a solid cappuccino. Excited to try with other brew methods.
Very good coffee, a little on the lighter side. I find myself using more coffe to get it to the strength I want. Similar in flavor to the first coffee we received and while good, I would rank this 2nd.
Fantastic. We really enjoyed this coffee.
Sadly we really didn't love this coffee. It felt much more aromatically muted than the others, and much more earthy/smoky. We prefer something with brighter acid, more citrus notes and less of that leather/tar profile.
The flavors in this coffee were too subtle for my taste. I was a much bigger fan of Costa Rica El Trapiche. The acidity levels were spot on though.
Lack of distinguishing and consistent characteristics. Flavors were very subtle and only the above average acidity kept this cup afloat. 77/100
I enjoyed the fuller bodied, medium roast. But there was too much chocolate covered strawberries flavor.
I really liked this Ethiopian. The fruitiness is balanced and not too overwhelming. The dark berry and chocolate notes come through nicely.
Love the dark berry - flavorful but not overbearing.
3 1/2 stars. The fruitiness is a bit flat, and it lacks sweetness, but overall it's very good and pleasant to drink.
very acidic, lacking in flavor. this was disappointing.
Not a big fan of the almond aroma. Acidity is acceptable
Mostly strawberry notes with hints of blueberry and a nice short chocolaty finish. Nice, balanced, light-medium body cup, liked it best on V60 and iced really brought out the fruity flavors
Well balanced, fruity with lingering sweet chocolate
Some of the best coffee I've ever had! Really like the fruity notes with the little bit of chocolate.
Strong scent of blueberry though not as fruity tasting as some of the other Ethiopia varieties I've tried. Good chocolate taste and strong body fitting the profile of coffees I like.
While I'm enjoying the ripe blueberry and strawberry notes, I could do without the chocolate. It's not a coffee that I'd crave.
When put through the grinder I get a nice aroma of sweet blueberries. In the cup there is a blueberry acidity and nice sweet chocolate finish. This is the first time I've had this coffee so I'm going to put it through all my other brewing devices and see what tasting notes develop.
Love this coffee. I love Ethiopia coffee, the roast and flavor was perfect. Definitely one of my favorite coffees now.
Only OK... not a big fan of the chocolate flavors
In my opinion, this is a light to medium bodied coffee with very light aroma and a very fruity taste.It's probably a little light for our everyday coffee. On the spectrum between this coffee and April's dark roast, we would prefer to be somewhere in between (leaning toward the Tanzanian roast from April).

Not a big fan, it was too fruity for us. Not terrible, just not our preference.
too bright or acidic for me
While I found this coffee great, I would have preferred something with a little more body.
