About this coffee:

The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is 500 hectares with about 300 hectares planted in coffee and has been owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. It is located 510 kilometres south of Addis Ababa, and the property crosses the border of two villages - Taro and Sewana - located in Oromia region, in the Guji zone of Shakisso district of Ethiopia. 

Ismel oversees a staff of 25 permanent full-time and 300 seasonal employees, and the farm management offers free transportation services as well as financial support for building schools and administration buildings for the community. The farm competes with a nearby mining village for seasonal workers, so Ismel and his family tend to pay higher wages to their pickers in order to incentivize them returning year after year.

Kayon Mountain farm has a nursery on-site and utilizes shade (gravilla, acacia, and other indigenous trees) to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally. The farm is separated into different areas or blocks, each one is marked by its size, the variety of varieties planted there (as well as the date they were planted), elevation, the number of plants, and the type of soil.

This Ethiopian coffee is a clean, juicy and soothing cup. With fruity notes of strawberry & jackfruit on the front, finish with jasmine floral qualities and delightful honey sweetness.
