Ethiopia Kayon Mountain Single Origin Espresso
FLORAL // MEYER LEMON // CREAMY
This is a new, 240 hectare farm (established in 2012) with the aim of producing top quality coffee in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Guji is a recent addition to the range of unique coffees being exported from Ethiopia. Historically it has been exported as a Sidamo type, but after many years of lobbying the Ethiopian government for a geographical distinction, it is now possible to separate it.
While the cup profile is quite similar to Sidamo coffees, some people feel that there is a “little something special” in the terroir of Guji - no doubt due in part to the soaring altitude coupled with a diverse mix of heirloom Typica varieties.
Kayon Mountain is a floral espresso with a meyer lemon flavour and creamy mouthfeel.
