Our Guji Grade 1 Shakiso Natural comes from Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm in the Shakiso district in the Guji Zone, about 530 km from Addis Ababa. The farm is owned by families that were born and raised in the area and have 30 years of coffee experience.
Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm enjoys ideal coffee growing conditions. The farm lives in the shadows of evergreens that provide a multi-canopy structure. The Shakiso regions' volcanic soil is bursting with nutrients, creating a deep red and brown top-layer of soil. And, the regions' high altitude, bi-modal rainfall pattern and dry weather allow coffee cherries to develop slowly.
