Now your question might be –

HOW DOES SLOW

DO THIS?

HERE IS HOW!

HERE IS HOW!

IT ALL STARTS ON THE
BOLAVEN PLATEAU IN LAOS…

We operate a network of 37 Slow farmer families
– who we regard as individual entrepreneurs.

…SUPPORTED BY OUR TEAM OF 6 WHO WORK ON THE GROUND YEAR-ROUND

We at Slow don’t do sourcing trips, we stick around!

The 37 Slow farmers are supported by our on-the-ground team of six, consisting of coffee growing-, community engagement and forestry experts.

The team is led by our country manager, Bopanna, who has over 20 years of experience in working with coffee!

SLOW FARMERS WET-MILL AND DRY THEIR COFFEE IN THEIR OWN MICRO PROCESSING UNITS…

Each Slow farmer has their own micro wet-milling unit, fermentation tank and drying tables.

Processing the coffee further besides just picking berries results in a higher economic value-add for the Slow farmers, and provides a greater sense of ownership for the product.

…AND LOT IDENTITY IS MAINTAINED DURING PROCESSING AND EXPORT

Every coffee lot from each unique Slow farmer is kept strictly separate during processing (e.g., dry-milling) and export.

This is done in order to maintain the exact
identity of the coffee, and the grower behind it.

SLOW COFFEES ARE ROASTED IN AN ARTISAN ROASTERY IN COPENHAGEN…

Our partner, Resso Roasthouse, roasts Slow coffees with a state-of-the art Loring Machine (the ’Rolls Royce’ of roasters)

…AND OUR ROAST PROFILES ARE
DEFINED BY OUR ROAST-MASTER,
MICHAEL DE RENOUARD

Michael is a roasting consultant who travels the world advising some of the best roasters in the world.

Slow has been tremendously lucky to have him on the team, to help bring out the best of Lao beans!

UPDATES ON YOUR CHOSEN COFFEE SUPPLIER ARE PROVIDED BY OUR ON-THE-GROUND LAOS TEAM!

Because the Slow Laos team is on the ground year-round, we can also provide you photos, materials and updates from your chosen coffee supplier.

THIS IS WHAT WE CALL THE SLOW WAY
