The Idido Cooperative joined the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) in 2003. The 1,220 registered members of the cooperative span 7 different kebeles (communities), The Wegida washing station under the Idido Cooperative utilizes the traditional underwater fermentation popular in Ethiopia. The coffee is fermented underwater for approximately 36 hours, and then dried on raised beds for approximately 10-14 days.
The Yirgacheffe Wordea (district) is in the middle of the Yirgacheffe coffee producing area/region. From the town of Yirgacheffe, the Idido cooperative is just a few kilometers to the east. The elevation increases dramatically going from just under 1900 meters to over 2300 meters, with even a few farms with coffee over 2400. This impressive geography has made the small town of Idido (for which the cooperative is named) famous for its quality.
Farmers in Yirgacheffe, are very small having on average between 1 and 2 hectares - of which around half of their land is planted with coffee. The farms are often classified as "garden" productions systems, due to their size and the fact that often these owners are growing other substance crops. Most farmers in Gedeo alongside their coffee grow enset, a type of false banana that is used to make the a traditional bread called, "cocho".
