 More about the this coffee:

The Tegu factory is part of the Tekangu FCS in central Kenya, an organization that
oversees several factories in this area. Tekangu FCS is currently made up of 1200
member farmers, each with around 100 trees. The name Tegu comes from the
name of a river nearby that translates to "low place". It was famous for its
agricultural production indicating the area around the factory was fertile. During
harvest, smallholders deliver ripe cherries to this factory for processing. An initial
period of sorting occurs to ensure only the highest quality cherries get depulped and separated for fermentation. After a period of fermentation, the coffees are washed and soaked in another tank to develop the recognizable crisp acidity and sparkly characteristics found in coffees from this region. In the final stage, a period of drying occurs where the coffee beans are covered on raised beds and manually rotated every few hours. The final cup exhibits a refreshing tanginess with an intense sweetness that dominates the cup.
