This coffee comes from Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm in the Shakiso district in the Guji Zone, about 330 miles from Addis Ababa. The farm is owned by families that were born and raised in the area and have 30 years of coffee experience.
Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm enjoys ideal coffee growing conditions. The farm lives in the shadows of evergreens that provide a multi-canopy structure. The Shakiso region’s volcanic soil is bursting with nutrients, creating a deep red and brown top-layer of soil. Also, the region’s high altitude, bi-modal rainfall pattern and dry weather allow coffee cherries to develop slowly. In the last several years Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm has focused on increasing the quality of its coffee. The farm has been gaining recognition and winning awards for their outstanding coffees.
