Description: Idido only started processing Naturals about 20 years ago, relatively new a country with such old roots in coffee, after a few natural lots from nearby towns were received very well. The Idido Washing Station processes coffee from over 300 smallholder farmers. Farms in this area harvest Indigenous Heirloom coffee, called “forest coffee” locally. Most coffee here is grown under natural shade from trees called Cordia African and Acacia Ensete. Coffee delivered here are grown above 2,000 MASL, insanely high, resulting in bright, clean cups.

When coffee is delivered to Idido, the ideally ripe cherries receive a premium, and the rest is either renegotiated or returned to the farmer. Those ripe cherries are then taken to raised beds for drying which takes 15-20 days, depending on the weather conditions. The station manager, Samuel, has been collecting data for years on how cherries behave in processing, and studying which sub-districts produce the best cup quality, resulting in the station improving year after year.

So Yammy and nice acid

Love this one - beans seemed kinda small even after roasting but aroma on grind is indicative of taste in cup and I am very satisfied

Just roasted these beans on New Years. I roasted on the light side and brewed an espresso this morning on Day 3. The tasdte was light, bright and delicious. I'm looking forward to trying it as a pour over, and again as an espresso once it's aged a few more days.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
