Kayon Mountain farm is owned and operated by the family of Ismael Hassen, located in the southern Guji zone of Shakiso. The farm is split into two sections, each geagraphically plotted on neighboring towns of Taaroo and Sewana, divided by the invisible border between them. This lot is is pulled from small holder farmers around Taaroo town. Kayon Mountain farm have built out their own wet and dry milling facilities, handling all post-harvest milling themselves, overseeing quality management, and preparation for export. Like most of the country, the farm is planted in regional, distinct local strains of coffees that have spread from the wild forest plants of western Ethiopia, to Harar in the East and to the southern districts like Guji. This particular lot was wet-processed, meaning that after the cherry is removed from the seed, the sticky mucilage layer that surrounds the bean is removed after fermenting for 24-36 hours in water (this varies from region to region), before then being removed and laid out to dry on raised drying tables.
Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted to order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after the order has been received and according to the roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when the order has shipped or is ready for local pickup.
