The Hassen family oversees a staff of 25 permanent full-time and 300 seasonal employees. The farm competes with a nearby mining village for seasonal workers, so it often pays higher wages to incentivize their return year after year. The farm management offers free transportation services as well as financial support for building schools and other administration buildings for the community.
Ismel is meticulous about not only the structure and management of the farm itself, but also the harvesting and processing. Both Natural and Washed lots are produced on the property.

Coffee Review, July 2018
Overall Score: 94
"Elegant, intricately rich. Lemon verbena, raw honey, mango, star jasmine, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup... a richly sweet-tart, lively and complex Ethiopia coffee with deeply pleasing notes of mango and jasmine."
