This coffee is grown at an elevation of 2,050 – 2,200 meters above sea level. It undergoes a natural process and is dried on raised beds. The coffee is harvested from October to December. The coffee comes from family-owned farms situated around the Idido coffee mill which is in the Gedeo Zone of Ethiopia near the town of Yirgacheffe. Small coffee farmers bring their ripe cherries to the Idido mill so that the cherries can be sorted and dried on raised beds. The cherries are then turned every 2 – 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Afterwards, the coffee is taken to Addis Ababa so that it can be milled and bagged for export.
