The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is 287 hectares, owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. It is located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. He 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, accacia, and other indigenous trees) to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally.
Description from Cafe Imports.
This is a full flavor with blueberry tones. The aroma is delicious as well as the taste.
From package to cup the aroma is blueberry bountiful. The cup is smooth, not sour or over roasted. Highly recommend.
I love this coffee. The aroma coming from the package before it was even open was enticing. The flavor is smooth and rich.
I received my coffee quickly and this was absolutely delicious. I was blown away by the complexity of flavour in this drink. Usually when a description says things like you can taste berries and chocolate and such I don't but this was different. I will be subscribing to their coffee club.
