Information about Yirgacheffee:
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.
Bourbon aged coffees are truly a treat, and due to space and time constraints this offering is extremely limited in quantity. It's well worth the wait though! Please let us know if you'd like to be placed on the reserve list. This will also help us pull greens aside for the aging process.
