TANO NDOGO AB


Tano Ndogo was established in 1965 and is exclusively using the famously complex variety, SL28. This, along with a good altitude of 1820 masl brings about some great, nuanced flavour character 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.

The Tano Ndogo wet-mill processes coffee using methods typical throughout Kenya. Local people are paid to pick the ripe coffee cherries between October and January and these are pulped using disc pulpers in the wet mill. The water used to float the resulting mucilage coated beans also aids quality separation by density since heavier beans sink in the water whilst lighter beans float on the surface. By channelling these beans separately three grades of parchment coffee are created; P1 (the best), P2 and P3. The parchment coffee is then channelled into large tanks where dry fermentation occurs during the following 24 hours or so. Once the mucilage is loose, the beans take on a pebble-like feel and so the fermentation process is halted by washing the beans in channels full of water, where further quality separation takes place, since low grade ‘floaters’ can be directed away from the dense high-quality beans. Next the parchment coffee is channelled to a soak tank where it sits in cold water for around 24 hours, a process which develops the amino acids within the beans and is thought to contribute to Kenyan coffee’s unique flavours.

Next the parchment is laid in a thin layer upon raised beds and allowed to dry under the sun for between 11 and 14 days. The coffee then undergoes a period of storage or ‘resting’ before being delivered to a mill where the parchment will be removed, and the coffee screened and cleaned to remove any defects. It will then be graded by size to create AA, AB, PB etc and finally it will be packed in grain-pro lined bags or in vacuum packs ready for export.

Our speciality Kenyan coffee beans are roasted light, producing a sweet and fruity coffee with notes of lychee, lemon and malt chocolate. It’s a versatile coffee that can easily be brewed in a variety of methods, including a French Press, V60, AeroPress and Moka Pot, but is ideally best enjoyed as a black coffee.

Packed and supplied in 100% recyclable bags. Buy online as whole beans for you to grind yourself or as freshly ground coffee in coarse, medium or fine. 

Wherever possible we try to roast our coffee to order to ensure the coffee you receive is as fresh as possible. This can unfortunately mean that coffee orders will not always be shipped on the same day the order is placed. Keep an eye on your email inbox for shipping updates.

One of a great batch

This Kenyan coffee is great - a good roast on it that really pulls out the flavour. It's one of a great batch of African coffees that Copper have on at the moment with also some excellent Rwanda coffee available
