Tasting notes

Yasmine — Cherry — clean cup

Karogoto factory is part of the renowned Tekangu Farmers Cooperative Society. Tekangu consists of Tegu, Ngunguru and Karogoto factory after a merge of the three factories in 2005. Altogether, Tekangu services roughly 2900 producers in an estimated area under coffee of 350 hectares.

One of the reasons why Karogoto produces such outstanding crisp and clear coffees is its drying field. A rare sight, the tables are all raised metal structures, not the usual wooden buildup. The metal drying tables have a much longer drying span and will not collapse as easily as the wooden ones. This is a huge advantage for a uniform drying process. The factory is still built to the old style, with the processing unit down the hill below the drying tables. After washing and grading, pumps bring the wet parchment up to the drying field.
