The Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Idido is sourced from family-owned farms organised around the Idido coffee mill located in the Gedeo zone of Ethiopia. The Gedeo region is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. This Ethiopian Heirloom varietal is grown at an elevation of 2,050 - 2,200 MASL.
The Idido mill is located in a beautiful valley in the town of Idido near the town of Yirgacheffe. Small coffee farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Idido mill where the cherries are sorted. The cherries are placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
