Ethiopia Kayon Mountain is back! This is the 4th time we have sourced coffee from this farm. We get notes of cooked berries and peach, with some very clean floral undertones and a smooth finish. 

Kayon Mountain is a certified Organic farm that produce both washed and natural lots across 500 hectares. They are relatively new having only started planting in 2012, but Ismael Hassen Aredoa and his family have done a fantastic job thrusting them to the forefront of the specialty coffee scene in Ethiopia. With 25 permanent full-time, and over 300 seasonal employees, they are quickly becoming a household name. Ismael competes with other seasonal businesses in the area for employees, so he tends to pay much higher wages to his farmers. On top of this, they offer free transportation for employees and provide financial support for building schools and social projects within the community. 

Kayon Mountain utilizes indigenous trees in order to shade grow this coffee, as well as providing the precious coffee trees below with organic material to naturally fertilize the soil. This process can slow down the growth of the coffee allowing more time for complex flavors to develop, a process which some believe helps contribute to a more flavorful cup. All the time and effort put in by Ismael and his team leads to an excellent finished product, delivering complexity with bright finish.
