Kayon Mountain farm is located in the southern Guji zone of Shakiso. The Kayon Mountain group both own a private farm and run a few coffee processing sites in Guji. "Taaroo" is one of these sites where they produce dry process and wet process coffees. Taaroo gets its name from the kebele in which it is located (the "town", more or less). The Taaroo site was erected 8 years ago and is outfitted with a 4-disc depulper, 14 fermentation tanks for the washed coffees, and over 200 drying tables. They buy coffee cherry from the farmers in the Taaroo area and process their coffee along with their own farm coffee, blending together by process day and grade. Altitude ranges from 1900 meters to above 2100.
