Equator Coffees - 50/50 Organic Blend - 12 oz.

STORYarticle-shape

Sometimes you want some caffeine in your coffee but not as much as usual, that’s why we came up with 50/50 Blend. This certified organic blend combines Mocha Java with Decaf Shakeout, providing the perfect balance of flavor and caffeine for many of us.

Mocha Java is synonymous with fruit-forward flavors. We combine a pair of coffees from Ethiopia, a blueberry-like natural processed coffee, and a vibrant, citrus- and floral-toned washed coffee. The blend is completed with a wet-hulled coffee from Sumatra, which creates a complex, softly fruity cup.

When combined with Decaf Shakeout, the flavors of 50/50 Blend sweeten up further, adding notes of chocolate and nuts. In order to keep Decaf Shakeout fresh and lively through the year, coffees from some of our favorite Latin American origins are selected. The current version is made up entirely of coffee from Cafès Especiales Corquín (CAFSÉCOR) cooperative, which is based in the Copán growing region of Western Honduras. CAFSÉCOR is dedicated to improving the livelihood of its members, providing training and financing aimed at increasing quality, yields, and producer earnings. The group is committed to the preservation of the environment and local wildlife and started a campaign against child labor in 2019.

The resulting flavor of 50/50 Blend is sweet, balanced, and complex, which hints of berry-like fruit, rounded out with deeper flavors of almond and cacao. A great coffee for people cutting back on caffeine or for those times when you want a delicious coffee with a bit less caffeine.

Roast Magazine's 2010 Roaster of The Year Award Winner!

Equator's commitment to a sustainable, transparent approach spans more than two decades. Today, Equator operates nine cafes predominantly in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration honored Equator by naming Equator the "National Small Business of the Year." Since their founding, Equator has been a leader in sustainability and social responsibility. In 2011, they formalized their commitment to sustainability by becoming a certified B Corporation, making it the first California coffee roaster to do so. Equator’s philosophy on coffee is built from a question: how do they create value from their perch in the coffee supply chain, standing at the intersection between local and distant coffee communities? It is this question that continues to frame their narrative as they strive to grow a business that values the stakeholders in both communities with respect for the people, the process, and the product. Equator believes that quality underlies economic and environmental sustainability, and this is the pillar of our approach. They support environmentally sound certifications, as well as practices that produce the highest quality coffee while securing a dignified life for those who produce it.
