Kilenso Mokonissa is one of the smallest villages in the Borena Hagermariam District of Sidama. In the past, the coffees coming from Kilenso would have been blended into larger lots and sold under the area’s catch-all name, “Ardi.” Since Coava began separating it out, Kilenso has become a customer favorite due to the unique flavor profile.
Like many small producers, the farmers here use organic farming practices but find certification is unattainable due to the high certification cost. The producers are methodical, conscientious, & passionate about growing and harvesting incredible coffee.
Taste notes: Brown sugar, lavender, dark rum, cantaloupe, strawberry cream, hints of marmalade, grape jam, & almond biscotti. Kilenso is a unique and stunning standout coffee you'll love in any preparation.
