A classic Kenyan profile full of blackcurrant flavour.
The Tegu factory founded in 1969. It's one of the largest and oldest within the Tekangu Farmers Cooperative Society. Tegu sits in one Kenya’s best coffee growing regions, Nyeri.
Before being pulped by the depulper machine, the cherries are sorted to reduce defects. The parchment is left in the cement tank to dry ferment until the next day. During the fermentation process, the mucilage was reduced and liquefied.
This gives Tegu a more transparent mouthfeel and bright acidity. After the fermentation, the coffee is washed with water through a gravity-fed channel to separate the floating coffees. Once it’s done, the coffee is dried on a raised bed for 8-14 days depending on the microclimate.
*PRICE TO PRODUCERThis is defined as the price paid to either the coffee producer who grows and processes their own coffee or the entity overseeing the primary post-harvest process. the UDS/lb calculation relates to the volume of exported green coffee.
LIVE TRANSPARENCY REPORT

Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 min
Roast & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and dispatched on Monday.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
