|Region||Gitwe Village in Kiambu County|
|Varietals||SL28 & SL34|
Cup Profile: From tasting this ecstatic coffee at our roastery we’ve experienced a forward burst of stewed rhubarb, the zingyness of orange zest and a buttery body finish. As this coffee rests you may experience taste notes of blackberry crumble and honey.
Tano Ndongo was established in 1965 and is exclusively using the variety SL28 where of course the most nuanced coffee characteristics can be found. This, along with a good altitude of 1,820 MASL brings about some great complexity in the cup. Furthermore, the Muuru brothers, Francis, David, James, John and Joseph, are experienced coffee farmers as can be seen by the excellent condition of their trees which they hope will each yield a respectable 30 KG of cherry in the harvest of 2018/19. This year the farm produced around 180 bags of coffee in total.
