Kichwa Tembo means “elephant head” in Swahili, and for Cafe Imports, this mark represents the strength in the cups. Our Kichwa Tembo signature offerings present a classic, hardworking Kenya profile with citrus fruit like grapefruit, bright and tangy acidity, balanced sweetness, and some of the complexity expected from a Kenyan.
Kenyan Arabica is grown on rich volcanic soils found in the highlands between 1400 to 2000 meters above sea level. The climate is never hotter than a European summer and never cooler than the best kind of European spring with a temperature range of not more than 19C (35F). Rainfall is well distributed throughout the year where coffee is grown with annual precipitation not less than 1000 mm (35”) and deep well-drained red loam soils. These conditions make most of the districts in Kenya where coffee is grown unique in the world.
