Roasts and Ships Wednesday's Only.

Our friends at Granja La Esperanza produced this unique Mokka variety coffee on their newest farm Finca Hawaii, named in honor of Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms, the source of the seeds used to plant the Colombian farm. Located on the Hawaiian island of Maui, Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms helped popularize the unique Mokka cultivar. With its tiny beans, the rare Mokka variety had apparently been crossed with the locally grown Hawaiian Typica variety before making its way to Colombia. The history of the Mokka variety however goes back much further; thought to have been collected by researchers in Brazil from beans that had originated, at some point, in Yemen. The beans have a striking similarity in appearance to a Yemeni variety called Ismaili. This coffee was processed using the natural method where the coffee cherries are left to dry on the beans full intact, resulting in an intensely fruity flavor profile. Once unheard of in Colombia, the natural method of processing is beginning to gain popularity with more growers. Granja La Esperanza has been instrumental in influencing the Colombian Coffee Federation, who now routinely approve select natural processed lots for export.

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.
