In Our Roastery
We try to always have a classic, fruity, natural processed coffee from Ethiopia available in our line-up. Coffees like this have a huge fanbase. We admire them for their ripe fruit flavor, a comforting reminder of what coffee really is: a tropical fruit. There's a certain expectation when the words "natural" and "Ethiopia'' appear on an offerings list. We hope to encounter berries, chocolate, jammy sweetness, and a refreshing juicy mouthfeel in the cup. This coffee, from the Yigacheffe region of Ethiopia, fits the bill perfectly.
In Your Lineup
Natural offerings from Ethiopia are most often seen as lighter roast single origin offerings. The perfect candidate for a pour over or flash-iced brew, treating this coffee with a soft touch allows the fantastic fruity flavors to speak for themselves. This coffee can also add depth and chocolatey sweetness to blends (we recommend adding 20-30% to a blend for best results) and it's especially perfect for Cold Brew. We utilize it in our Cold Brew Blend to create a syrupy coffee with notes of blackberry and maple.

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.
Greater traceability allows Cafe Imports to buy more directly from the same washing stations year in and year out, and opens the potential for partnerships on a more micro level, with individual farmers or smaller groups within a community, to select out special lots.
