Ethiopia Idido Coffee
Idido has been a cooperative since the late ‘70s, and has since grown to include over 1,000 members. We wanted to share the Idido because of its bright fruitiness, something which showcases the much-loved profile of classic Ethiopian coffee. Although coffee originates from Ethiopia, it doesn’t often have the usual dark chocolate flavours and nuttiness associated with coffee. It can be very vibrant, and really conveys that coffee is a fruit with lots of natural sweetness. The Idido perfectly captures this, with a summer-like fruity cup.

In Ethiopia, there are coffee co-ops all over the country, meaning coffee farmers are usually part of one co-op or another. The farmer will pick their coffee cherries and bring them to the local market, where there are buying stations from cooperatives and private mills. Producers can listen to the radio to find out the recent prices both the co-ops and mills have sold their coffee at, and then decide to whom they will sell their lot.

These co-ops typically offer a lower up-front payment, but there will be a second payment down the line once they sell on the coffee. On the other hand, the private mills tend to offer a larger upfront payment, with less down the line. Producers tend to decide which to go with based on whether they can hold out without income for a few months, or if they need it all at the point of harvest.

Whichever they go with, the coffee is next wet-milled and sent to be dried, before being auctioned or sold directly to a buyer.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
