Processing: Cherries are hand sorted for unripes and overripes by the farmers before they go in to production. An Agaarde disc pulping machine removes the skin and pulp. The coffees are graded by density in to 3 grades by the pulp­er. Grade 1 and 2 go separately to fermentation. Grade 3 is considered low grade. The coffee is fermented for 16-24 hours under closed shade. After fermentation the coffees are washed and again graded by density in wash­ing channels and are then soaked under clean water from the stream for 16-18 hours. Sun dried up to 21 days on African drying beds.

Tegu is a Kikuyu name which means “low place” and is the name of the local river. Tegu Factory (washing station) is part of the Tekangu Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS). In recent years they have been able to give more than 85% of the sale price back to the farmers, and are always able to get prices above the current market standards because of the high quality of their coffee. They have proved to be very consistent on quality over the years, and have great systems for traceability and quality control. Tegu collects cherries from about 1200 smallholders with an average of 0,4 hectares of coffees. Their total production is about 330 tons of cherries per year. Fermentation is done with fresh river water. The same water is recycled and used for pulping multiple times during the day which significantly reduces water consumption.

The Tekangu Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS) is located in Nyeri in Central Kenya. Nyeri is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya, and together with the neighbouring region Kirinyaga, is known for its intense, complex, and flavour-dense coffees. The FCS is made up of mainly smallholder farms, each with some 100 trees. They are organised in Cooperative Societies that acts as umbrella organisations for the factories where the small­holders deliver their coffee cherries for processing.
