You may remember the Kayon Mountain name from our previous Ethiopian coffee lineups. Kayon Mountain farm is owned and operated by the family of Ismael Hassen, located in the southern Guji zone of Shakiso. They also have a few washing stations throughout the Guji Zone where small holder coffees are pocured and processed from the surrounding villages. This lot is is pulled from small holder farmers in Genet Kebele ("kebele" = "village") of Hambela Wamena, a high altitude region that tops out at 2100 meters above sea level. We cupped several lots from Kayon Mountain group, and this is one of a handf ull that we purchased. Like most of the country, the farm is planted in regional, distinct local strains of coffees that have spread from the wild forest plants of western Ethiopia, to Harar in the East and to the southern districts like Guji. This lot was wet-processed, often simply called "washed coffee", meaning that after the cherry is removed from the seed, the sticky mucilage layer that surrounds the bean is removed after fermenting for 24-36 hours in water (this varies from region to region). The fermentation process breaks down the fruit, which can then be washed away with clean water, and laid out to dry on raised drying tables for upwards of 2 weeks.
