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.
