STORYarticle-shape

Mocha Java is a classic blend name synonymous with fruit-forward flavors. Typically, natural processed coffee from Yemen or Ethiopia is combined with coffee from Indonesia, usually Java but sometimes from other islands such as Sumatra.

We take a slightly different approach to our Fair Trade and organic certified version of Mocha Java Blend, which is built around a pair of coffees from Ethiopia. The first is a natural processed coffee from the Sidama growing region that gives the blend its classic fruit-forward character. The second is a vibrant, fully-washed coffee that adds brightness and subtle floral notes. Finally, we complete the blend with a coffee from the Ketiara Cooperative in the Gayo Mountain region of Sumatra’s Aceh Province. Our coffee, affectionately known as Queen Ketiara, is grown by the group’s women producers. This rich and full bodied coffee balances out the other more nuanced components to create a complex and smooth blend with just the right amount of fruit presence.

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.
