You may have been drinking an award-winning coffee for the past month and not even known it!
Our lovely Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Idido from Kickapoo Coffee is one of the best coffees to come
out of that region last year. A recent winner of a Good Food Award and 94-point score from
CoffeeReview.com, this bean is a must-try.
Yirgacheffe is a town in Southwestern Ethiopia with perfect conditions for great coffee: high
altitudes, fertile soil, good processing systems, and heirloom varietals. The Idido Cooperative
there is one of the most well-respected coops in the industry. Our friends at Kickapoo visited
the co-op in 2011 and have nothing but great things to say about the people who turn out these
beautiful coffees. According to Kickapoo, Idido was established in the late 1970's and joined
the ranks of Yirgacheffe Farmer's Union in 2002. The cooperative has roughly 1000 active
members who cultivate farms averaging 1.5 hectares.
We offer this coffee on a regular basis as one of our daily brews downtown, and you can find it
on the Brew Bar in Benson. It's buttery body, floral aroma, and notes of cherry and lemon shine
in a Clever or a Chemex, so give it a try!
