Ethiopian coffee from a single farm is a rarity.
Why we love this coffee
So it is with particular pride that we share this small-lot from the Guji zone. Kayon translates to “goal,” a mantra for the farm owners who are driven to take extra steps in the name of unparalleled coffee. They employ extensive pruning and, remarkably, use half of their land for shade trees. These methods are rarely seen in Ethiopia, where much of the coffee is wild-grown.
And because Kayon has its own washing station, the owners export coffee directly, allowing them to maintain full control of every step of the process. The cup is beautifully floral: a testament to the farm owners’ dedication and determination.
