The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is a 500 hectare farm owned and operated by Ismel Hassen and his family since 2012. This farm produces both natural and washed coffees on its properties, as Ismel is meticulous about ensuring quality through harvesting and processing. Located 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa, the property crosses the border of two villages—Taro and Sewana—located in the Oromia region, in the Guji zone of the Shakiso district of Ethiopia.
 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 keep seasonal employees coming back every year.
