Nurturing people and nature.
Slow is promoting biodiversity on the coffee farms by growing and protecting native plants and trees.
The farmers earn a living income that is fair, equitable and sustainable.
Being a genuine end-to-end company, Slow ensures full traceability with no intermediaries.
More carbon is captured in Slow's agroforests than it is emitted in the entire coffee production chain.

News & Updates

Slow works slowly and at nature's pace – to fulfill our mission of growing great coffee and preserving and regenerating the world's forests.

We partner with other game-changers like you to take real action in response to pressing climate challenges.


We are happy that you have joined our mission.


An agroforest is a planted or natural forest with agriculture embedded. A coffee agroforest is one in which coffee plants are grown.


By planting trees and bushes alongside existing coffee plants, the planted forest will, over time, closely mimic a natural forest that will attract and host a variety of insects and wildlife. This environment is far more generative than the existing coffee monocultures and excellent for producing quality coffee, as it resembles the original conditions under which coffee naturally grew.

“Humanity is waging war on nature. This is suicidal. Making peace with nature is the defining task of the 21st century. It must be the top, top priority of everyone, everywhere.“

UN Secretary General Antonio Gutteres, December 2020


Slow is in the business of nature-positive coffee. The term refers to halting and reversing the loss of nature by 2030, a Global Goal for Nature laid out by prominent scientists and leaders like Johan Rockström, Paul Polman and Peter Bakker.


In practice, it means that Slow works towards:


• Capturing more carbon in our coffee forests than is emitted in the rest of our production. This carbon capture occurs naturally in agroforests without buying carbon credits or offsets. 
• Bringing back more biodiversity in our coffee forests by growing and preserving native plants and trees that work to attract and host insects and wildlife.
• Ensuring that local ecosystems are cleaner and healthier through natural processing and no harmful practices.
