Brazilian Arabica coffees have a very peculiar characteristic in term of body and sweetness which makes it an ideal ingredient for a true espresso. For this reason, we’ve developed a signature blend that is specifically targeted for espresso. With consistent cocoa, sweet, and toffee notes, we’re excited to offer this unique blend of coffees hailing from various suppliers in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. Growing altitude for this blend ranges from 700 - 1,350 masl.
The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is 287 hectares, owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. It is located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. He oversees a staff of 25 permanent full-time and 300 seasonal employees, and the farm management offers free transportation services as well as financial support for building schools and administration buildings for the community. The farm competes with a nearby mining village for seasonal workers, so Ismel and his family tend to pay higher wages to their pickers in order to incentivize them returning year after year. Kayon Mountain farm has a nursery on-site and utilizes shade (acacia, and other indigenous trees) to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally.
