This is an Organic Grade 1 natural coffee from the Kayon Mountain farm located in the Guji zone of Ethiopia's Shakiso district. The Kayon Mountain Farm, owned by Esmael Hassen, harvests about 300 hectares of its 500 hectare farm and uses its own wet and dry mills for processing. Elevation ranges from 1900 to 2200 masl and variety is entirely Ethiopian Heirloom.

After harvest, cherries are machine pulped and fermented for 24 to 36 hours. The beans are then dried on African beds for 12 to 20 days. Kayon Mountain Farm keeps one washing station and one dry huller in the Shakiso District and has a sister company in the Guji/Kercha District, with two washing stations and a dry huller. All stations and hullers are committed to exporting traceable coffee.

Cupping Notes: Sweet, strawberry, red raspberry, blueberry, chocolate, well balanced.

Hilarious that the other review was almost identical to what I wanted to write, this coffee had no reviews when I ordered it so I wanted to give it a go. It is very fruity, so fruity it smells"off" after roasting and letting it rest for 2 days. It tastes sweet and had a very nice blue berry, dark chocolate finish that lingers. Everyone that tried it said the same thing. I will be ordering more of this, also that 18 rabbit Honduras black honey process is very nice. Roasted to just 30 seconds passed first crack in a Fresh roast SR 800.

Another excellent Ethiopian natural. Fruity with balanced acidity and to me a bit less body than the Shantawene. Another coffee to purchase in quantity.

Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of naturally processed coffee. I like the sweetness, the fruit flavors, and the taste of chocolate. This was definitely that. It is a one of the finest cups of coffee I’ve tasted. I roasted in a whirley pop, full medium roast. This year, it is my #2 rated coffee, so far. If you’re wondering what my #1 is, it’s Honduran 18-Rabbit Natural. It has many of the same qualities as this fine coffee, but more amped on the fruit flavor. This might be a better “every day” coffee, however.
