About Slopes of 8

‘Slopes of 8’ is a coffee comprised of 8 selected coffee growers from the Kirinyaga region (at the foot of Mount Kenya). These farmers have produced this outstanding coffee independently without the standard cooperatives, washing stations, or help from the Kenyan Coffee Exchange.

Daniel from ALPHA Coffee – “I love this coffee, it tastes amazing and tells a great story of 8 farmers who grow, process and sell the coffee themselves.”

“I use 1 1:17 ratio (e.g. 18g of coffee / 305g of water), blooming for 30 sec with 40g of water (with stirring), then one slow pour with the remaining water. Aiming for a total brew time about 2:15 minutes and a TDS of 1.32.”
