Kichwa Tembo (GrainPro)

View Beanology

"Kichwa Tembo" means "elephant head" in Swahili, and, for Café Imports, the mark represents the strength in these cups. Our Kichwa Tembo coffees represent a classic, hardworking Kenyan profile: Sweet tropical fruit balanced by complex savory elements of herb and tomato, and a creamy body.

We strive to offer high-quality Kichwa Tembo coffees in addition to our more traceable Kenyan microlots and factory-specific lots (washing stations are often called "factories" in Kenya).
