SL28 is a very special and notable coffee variety. In the 1930’s, Scott Laboratories (“SL”) began testing and categorizing coffee varietals. SL28 was one of the varieties of coffee identified as delivering the highest cup quality and most intense sweetness, and for thriving in the growing conditions in Kenya.
