Story: This Ethiopia Kayon Mountain is a certified organic coffee from the region of Shakiso, Oromina grown between 1,900-2,200 meters above sea level. This single origin coffee is usually harvested anytime between November to February. Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm, founded in 2012, is jointly owned by several families. Half of the farm’s 500 hectares are planted in heirloom Typica coffee trees. On the other half, the families grow cabbages and indigenous shade trees. In 2015 Kayon Mountain built its own washing station and dry mill, giving the farm complete quality control over its exceptional coffee.
