Kenya Nyeri Tegu

|Coffee Origin:||Nyeri growing region, south-central Kenya.|

|Review Date:||December 2013|
Sweetly pungent, balanced but deep. Dark chocolate, plum-like fruit, hints of lemony citrus and savory baking spice in aroma and cup. Plush, delicately rich acidity; silky, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a roundly resonant finish.
Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world's most elegant and distinctive coffees. Tegu is a cooperatively owned and operated wet mill or “washing station” particularly admired for its meticulous fruit harvesting and sorting. Mt. Whitney Coffee Roasters sources, imports and roasts top coffees from around the globe; it is a 501-C3 non-profit that donates all profit after expenses to fund schools and food and well-drilling programs in Africa.
