Flatlands Coffee - Ethiopia Coffee, Idido - 10 oz.

THE UNIQUE STORY

A classic and iconic Ethiopian profile, showcasing fruity and sugarcane sweetness, floral flavors, and citrus acidity. If you like Ethiopian coffees, this Yirgacheffe will hit the spot. Coffee from this Idido village is so iconic, you’ve likely seen it elsewhere… we too have tried these coffees from many roasters over the years and are thrilled to now roast it ourselves, so we may highlight our favorite flavors.

Idido is the village (or kebele), 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.

Aside from its near-legendary status as the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions—areas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment Yirgacheffe’s forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity.

Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct—both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, Washed or Natural.

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.
