Idido is a private washing station situated just North of the town of Yirgachefe in Centra-Southern Ethiopia, Gedeo region. Located on a high plateau at a minimum of 1,800masl, Yirgachefe is a big city of 21,000 inhabitants and the administrative center of the Yirgacheffe woreda or district, one of the most important coffee-growing areas in the country. The station is just a few miles up North and was established in 1998, then owned and operated by Ranger Industry and Trading PLC since 2017, a young Ethiopian company engaged in coffee export, coffee education, quality control and sustainable relationships with their coffee growers. Created in May 2009, Ranger Industry, like many other actors on the Ethiopian market, tried to move away from the ECX (Ethiopian Commodity Exchange) and directly export their coffee. This coffee was sourced with the help of our partner, Trabocca.
