Ethiopia Yirgacheffee Idido
Idido is the village, orkebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. Until recently, coffee grown by smallholders and co-ops in Ethiopia were required to be sold through the ECX, where lots were classified by general region, quality (Grade 1–5), and escaped of most of their traceability. In March of 2017, the prime minister of Ethiopia approved a reform allowing cooperatively owned washing stations to export their coffee directly, which allows for separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia.
