What interesting about coffee is its similarity to wine. Wine gets better overtime, so does coffee. This is the case even more so for coffee from Ethiopia. Ethiopia is said to be the birthplace of coffee and is home to many of the best coffees in the world. Ethiopian coffee was a prized possession in many countries throughout history. Coffee from this region is more complex than any other bean, due to its genetic make-up. Green coffee beans from this region hold longer genomic structures than in any other countries, meaning it stays fresh longer.

The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is 500 hectares with about 300 hectares planted in coffee and has been owned and operated by Ismael Hassen Aredo and his family since 2012. It is located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa, and the property crosses the border of two villages—Taro and Sewana—located in the Oromia region, in the Guji zone of the Shakiso district of Ethiopia.Ismael 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 while also paying higher wages to their pickers.

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. Both Natural and Washed lots are produced on the property. Washed coffees are picked ripe and dupulped the same day. They are fermented for 24–36 hours, weather-dependent, and then dried on raised beds. Natural coffees are picked, rinsed and sorted, and moved to the drying beds. In both cases, the drying can take between 12–20 days, also depending on the weather.
