Kayon Mountain Farm is back!  Over the years, we have purchased a number of coffees from this farm.  It processes cherries into both washed and natural coffees, and we are consistently impressed with the outcome.  This year is no exception!
 
Kayon Mountain Farm is located on the border of two villages—Taro and Sewana—located in the Oromia region, in the Guji zone of the Shakiso district of Ethiopia. Owned by Ismel Hassen, it has an impressive 300 planted trees, with more room to expand. The farm has 25 permanent employees and 300 seasonal employees. It offers free transportation services to its staff, as well as financial services for schools and other projects for the local community.  It pays well above average wages for its employees.  Since the farm is Certified Organic, it pushes quality by meticulously managing all of its harvesting and processing. Its nursery is on site and uses indigenous trees to protect and shade the coffee trees while they mature.

This selection is a washed process coffee.  For this method, the coffee is picked when ripe and de-pulped the same day, and then fermented for 24–36 hours (depending on the weather). After fermentation, the coffee is dried on raised beds for another 12-20 days (also depending on weather). The result is this wonderful coffee!
We feel that the coffee showcases a ton of delicate flavors, but its most prominent are notes of lemon curd, apricot, and lavender with a crisp and juicy body.  This coffee is a great pairing for the summer season and tastes great both hot and cold. Best enjoyed while sipping in the sun!
