From Café Imports about the farm:
“The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is 287 hectares, owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. It is located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. He oversees a staff of 25 permanent full-time and 300 seasonal employees, and 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. Kayon Mountain farm has a nursery on-site, and utilizes shade (gravilla, accacia, and other indigenous trees) to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally”
