Many specialty coffee lovers think back to their first experience with an African Natural coffee as the moment where their eyes were opened to what specialty coffee is and can be - a complex, fruit-forward coffee experience.

Our Ethiopia Shakiso delivers that same experience with intense blueberry, strawberry, and cacao notes that are brought out by the natural fermentation process of this coffee.

The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is owned by multiple families that have been born and raised around the experience of coffee. These shareholding members had mainly been supplying coffee to auction for the past 30 years until they started their farm in 2012. This farm boasts a 500 hecatare spread, of which half is planted in heirloom Typica coffee and the other land reserved for cabbage, and indigenous shade trees. By 2015, they had implemented washing stations and dry-hullers allowing them to start exporting their own coffees and now see an annual production of about 300 tons. The coffees see an average fermentation time of 24–36 hours, followed by an average drying time of 12–20 days.
