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. We strive to offer high-quality Kichwa Tembo coffees as a price-conscious complement to our more traceable microlot offerings from this fabled growing country.
Kenya Kichwa Tembo
We are always so excited when we have a coffee from Kenya back on our menu. For many of us who have chosen coffee as a career path, we have fond memories of experiencing the dynamic and enticing flavors of Kenyan coffee for the first time. This signature coffee from Cafe Imports is no exception. It’s super balanced with a lot of bright and juicy acidity and a round mouthfeel.
