About this coffee: The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm has been owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. Ismel oversees a staff of 25 permanent full-time and 300 seasonal employees. 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.
