Equator Coffees - Jaguar Fair Trade Organic Espresso - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Jaguar is a complex espresso blend that combines organic and Fair Trade certified coffees from the world’s major growing regions: Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. With this blend we take a new world approach to a traditional-style espresso. Our goal is to develop flavors of fruit, dark chocolate and spice that result in an espresso sweet enough to taste great on its own, while maintaining enough richness and intensity to stand up to milk.

A fully washed coffee from Latin America is the foundation of the blend. Like most agricultural products, coffee is seasonal, so throughout the crop year the origin country changes to ensure freshness but, we always source coffees that provide clarity and sweetness. For complexity we add dry processed coffee from the Kayon Mountain Estate in Southern Guji, Ethiopia, which adds flavors of berries and bittersweet chocolate. A wet-hulled coffee produced by the Ketiara Cooperative in Sumatra’s Gayo Mountain region rounds out the blend. Ketiara is a women-led group that is committed to producing high quality coffee and empowering women of the local community. This coffee’s classic Sumatran character perfectly complements the blend’s other components by adding body and flavors of spice, resulting in a rich, full flavored espresso.

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.
