Tegu is one of the best performing washing stations in the Nyeri region.
When we first cupped this coffee it reminded us to some of the best years and examples of Kenyan coffees. We found the very distinctive flavour notes of black currant together with the typical tangy acidity. Furthermore it has deep complexity and lots of floral and tropical notes.
Impressive as filter coffee and more than enough structure to deliver great espresso!
