About Slow

Slow is not a traditional coffee company. We produce coffee in the forest and do not optimise according to maximising yields; instead, we optimise according to livelihood, biodiversity, carbon sequestration and transparency. This way, we can offer your company a nature-positive coffee solution.

This can only be done because we have a fully integrated value chain where we have removed 15-20 intermediaries. The value that is released, we redistribute back to nature and communities.


Our mission at Slow is to protect and regenerate forests and improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers through the production and sales of coffee and other tropical commodities.

Meet our team

Our international team is full of professionals who love their work and the impact Slow is creating! With 8 different nationalities, working from Finland, Laos, Denmark, Sweden, Philippines, and Ukraine, we are operating in the entire coffee value chain to bring you the best, and most sustainable coffee solution!
