Ismael Hassen Aredo is the owner of the Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm. He operates the farm with his family and a mix of permanent and seasonal employees. The farm is located in Ethiopia’s Guji zone of the Shakiso district.
Though coffee is often thought of as a staple cash crop in Ethiopia, Ismael has to compete for seasonal employees with a nearby mine. Ismael chooses to incentivise working at the farm by providing competitive wages which are often higher than at the mine.
Ismeal’s coffee is set apart by his farming, harvesting, and processing practices. He pays careful attention that the coffee cherries are picked ripe and that the cherries designated for washed coffees are depulped the very same day. The drying process for both natural and washed processed coffees takes between 12-20 days.
