About Yirgacheffe
Ethiopia is widely recognised as the ‘birthplace’ of Coffea arabica. And of all Ethiopian coffee growing regions Yirgacheffe is perhaps the most well-known and recognised. There is a certain romanticism that exists in the traditional bright, floral and complex qualities of Ethiopian coffees that so many of us never tire of experiencing. Spanning a remarkable topographic rollercoaster, the ECX Area of Yirgacheffe climbs from 1200 masl in the East of the Gedeo Zone, up to 3200 masl in the West, with only 30km in between. This dramatic expanse of height has led to a bio-diverse environment where native trees grow at the altitude in which they benefit most, including the many wild mutations of coffee varietals – this must be why the cup profiles of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffees are just so unique.

About Idido

The more Ethiopian farms and washing stations Project Origin visited, the more we came to realise the signature Ethiopian look was a signature for a reason – they all possessed elements of the same things: rainbow colours across the land, rainbow of colours of the coffee cherries, multiples of rows of raised drying beds, and lush mountainous hills featuring hundreds of varieties of wild grown coffee trees. At the Idido washing station there are long stacks of raised drying beds made from bamboo, covered in plastic, mesh and wire to support the green beans as they dry in the sun. Hand woven baskets speckle the area and groups of people work their way around each bed, hand sorting and turning the coffee. Teams of 10-20 people each day come in from the local town to respond to a call for work during the harvest season from October – February.
