Equator Coffees - El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro Honey - 6 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Delicate & sweet, this honey-processed coffee from fifth generation coffee producer Aida Batlle is a coffee we look forward to roasting every year.

Aida’s coffee doesn’t just taste exceptional - it’s improving lives too. Aida has garnered admiration for her commitment to quality and transparency, as well as for providing high wages, health care and other benefits for her workers in the Santa Ana growing region.

AIDA BATLLE Finca Kilimanjaro is owned and operated by Aida Batlle, a fifth-generation coffee farmer who has gained a great deal of respect within the coffee industry over the years. She entered her coffee in the very first El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition in 2003, making a splash by placing two winning lots, including first place for Finca Kilimanjaro. Since then, she has garnered admiration for her commitment to quality and transparency, as well as for providing high wages, health care and other benefits for her workers.

Located high in the hills above the town of Santa Ana, Finca Kilimanjaro (named by Aida’s father after the famous mountain in Tanzania) is planted with the Bourbon variety coffee, as well as what is rumored to be a mysterious cultivar imported from Kenya some seven decades ago. Could it be the renowned SL28, or a descendant of the original French Mission Bourbon? We may never know the true answer, but what we do know is this mysterious lineage in combination with high altitude and exceptional farm practices create a cup that tastes amazing!

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.
