We made this Holiday Blend for you; your family and chosen family; your neighbors and your pet sitters; everyone you love and everyone you’re learning to love.

This coffee is a blend of different components from different origins, that together make magic that’s best enjoyed when shared. Because we believe that people, like the components of this coffee blend, are better together.

5% of sales benefit the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA).

This year's Holiday Blend is comprised of coffees from some of Africa’s most familiar producing countries. The blend is built around a vibrant and complex coffee from Kenya which helps to bring out the flavors of the blend’s other components. A pair of coffees from Ethiopia contribute flavors of fruit and spices, as well as delicate floral notes. And finally, a coffee from a lesser-known producing country in Africa finishes the blend; this savory coffee from Zambia rounds out the blend by adding subtle herbal notes that complement the other component coffees beautifully.

All the blend’s components were processed using the washed method, where they are pulped after harvesting, fermented, then washed clean of any residual fruit before drying. The various varieties of the component coffees and terroir where each was cultivated, coupled with this processing contributes to the unique flavor profile Holiday Blend possesses, which reminds us of the holiday season.

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.
