Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Idido coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized 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. 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 and pulped. After pulping, the beans are fermented for 36 to 48 hours in stainless steel tank and then washed. The wet beans in parchment 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.
Depending on the weather, the beans are dried for 10 to 12 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
This Ethiopian coffee is unlike any ordinary heirloom. Super vibrant and intense fruity floral aromatics of lavender, blueberry & pear, finish with a white tea like aftertaste that reminds you that it's still a lovely classic coffee.
