Our Review: The Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Idido 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. 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.
If you've been roasting coffee with us for a while, you know that we absolutely love Ethiopian coffees, especially natural processed ones. The last several years we have been floored by the quality of natural processed coffees coming out of the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia and we've been waiting patiently for them to hit the states this season. This coffee from the Idido coop was the first to arrive and we snatched it right up. The wait has been worth it! Natural processed Ethiopian coffees are famous for being intensely funky and for some folks, it's just a little too much for them to handle. We feel that this one is actually surprisingly accessible and if you've been turned off to natural coffees in the past, we urge you to give this one a shot! It's fruity and complex but has an unusually full and silky body. It's a bit less "in your face" bright and the bourbon, earthy finish is a pleasant and warm way to end this fruity cup.
