Roadmap devotees know we just love coffee from Kayon Mountain Farms. Managed by Ismael Hassen Aredo and his family, the farm is located about 510 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. The 500 hectare Kayon Mountain features a staff of 25 full-time and 300 seasonal employees who benefit from free transportation services as well as Ismael’s financial support for local schools and community centers. Ismael and his family tend to pay higher wages to incentivize the seasonal employees return year after year, a human capital investment which helps Kayon Mountain produce some of the finest coffees in Ethiopia.
