3. What coffees do you send to SLURP coffee experience subscribers? Do the coffees change?

Where do the coffees come from?

Artisan roasters choose the most interesting and high quality coffees from around the world. These coffees are typically from the latest harvests, which ensures also the freshness of the unroasted (green) beans.

Green beans from the best farmers are roasted to perfection in the hands of the artisan roaster, and delivered when the taste is optimal.

What coffees will I receive in SLURP coffee experience?

With a SLURP coffee experience subscription each shipment will contain a new, interesting and definitely delicious coffee from one of our artisan roaster partners directly to your home. Each coffee comes always from a different roaster. We make sure that the coffees chosen for you are ones that you'll definitely like.

We send you coffees from the Finland’s, Germany's and Japan's best artisan roasters. Currently, we cooperate with about 40 different coffee roasters.

How do the choices I make on the site affect my subscription?

For example, if you choose the flavour profile SLURP light, take the pre-ground option and filter coffee as your brewing method, you would receive light roasted coffees perfectly ground for filter brewing methods.

If you select SLURP medium as the flavour profile, beans and espresso as the brewing method and you would receive medium espresso optimised roasts as beans.

You may choose from the following flavour profiles (depending on service):

  • SLURP light
  • SLURP medium
  • SLURP medium-dark
  • SLURP dark
  • SLURP midnight
