Equator Coffees - Decaf Espresso - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

For our Decaf Espresso blend we source coffees with the intention of creating a rich and balanced espresso that has the versatility to stand alone, or be paired with milk. We feel we have achieved this with two coffees from South America that are both decaffeinated without chemicals, using the water process of caffeine extraction.

The first coffee, from the Minas Gerais growing region of Brazil, is a mix of natural and pulped-natural lots that builds the blend’s foundation by imparting body, depth and flavors of fruit-toned chocolate. This coffee is grown by smallholder farmers associated with Cooperativa dos Cafeicultores do Cerrado (EXPOCACCER), which contributes to several social initiatives including The Pedro Bernardes Dias Educational Center. The program provides children of the community with everything from food and clothes to courses on an array of subjects such as computer skills.

Paired with the Brazil is a fully washed coffee from the Popayán growing region of Colombia. This coffee retained its original flavor intensity through the decaffeination process and adds brightness and complexity to the espresso. We like the coffee so much that we decided to feature it as a single origin offering in the past!

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.
