Kenya Tegu AA

Kenya Tegu AA

This lot from the Tegu Factory comes from Nyeri County, one of the world’s greatest regions for growing coffee. In the shadow of Mt Kenya, Nyeri is blessed with rich volcanic soil, abundant rainfall and high elevation: perfect for juicy coffees with very pleasant acidity. We find this lot in particular tastes of tropical fruit, currant, and cola.

Nyeri County, Kenya

Tegu, like all other Kenyan coffees, is a day lot made up of many smallholder farmers' crops. The Kenyan coffee system forbids direct relationships with producers and mandates that all coffees are processed by cooperatives and sold by licensed exporters. This unfortunately dilutes individual crops' terroir and disincentivizes agronomic improvements, but highly prioritizes processing quality. Washed Kenyan coffees are immaculate, very clean-tasting.
