This coffee is a Grade 1 natural process produced on a privately held farm called Kayon Mountain, owned by Ato Esmael and his family. The farm is environmentally and socially driven and is in fact certified organic. Kayon Mountain is roughly 240 hectares and produces natural “sun-dried” coffees in addition to fully-washed coffees. Once ripe coffee cherries are harvested, they are dried on raised beds for 12-20 days. Throughout the harvest and drying processes, the coffees are meticulously sorted in order to receive the “Grade 1” designation.
Natural processed and fruit-forward with tantalizing aromatics. We find flavors of ripe berries including blueberry and blackberry. The cup is balanced and heavy bodied with a unique spicy finish of both nutmeg and clove.
