Equator Coffees - Super Bloom Blend - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Our springtime seasonal blend combines the unique qualities of sustainable coffees from Burundi, Colombia, and Ethiopia to create a celebratory and diverse flavor profile.

TURIHAMWE WASHING STATION (BURUNDI) SMALLHOLDER FARMERS (COLOMBIA) BIRU BEKELE WASHING STATION (ETHIOPIA)

5% of every bag sold directly supports the women of the Turihamwe Washing Station, funding training for alternative income streams to boost their earnings during the coffee off-season.

Super Bloom is a seasonal offering roasting for a limited time only, so be sure to get it while it lasts! Custom bag only available in 12oz. size.

This year’s Super Bloom blend is built around a coffee produced by women smallholder farmers located in the Ngozi Province of Burundi. The coffee was processed at the Turihamwe Washing Station, the first in Burundi to be built and owned by women. The plant processes coffee for women producers of the Burundi chapter of the International Women’s Coffee Association, the first African chapter of IWCA to become a legally recognized entity. This fully-washed Bourbon variety coffee contributes floral and spicy flavors to the blend, perfectly complementing the contrasting characteristics of the other components.

Another fully-washed coffee from Colombia adds depth and body to the blend. it comes from a handful of villages around the town of Inzá in the Cauca Department, just a stones throw away the renowned Huila Department, which produces some of Colombia’s highest quality coffees. As one might expect, the quality and profiles available from Inzá can be close matches to Huila coffees, featuring flavors of dark cherry, ripe berries, and big-bodied red wine.

We finished the blend with a natural processed coffee grown by smallholder farmers in the Guji region of Southern Ethiopia. It was processed using the natural, or dry method at the renowned Biru Bekele washing station. After harvesting, the fruit was left to dry on the beans fully intact, imparting distinct berry-like flavors to the coffee. These fruit-forward flavors coupled with the classic floral notes that make coffee from Ethiopia so sought after contribute to Super Bloom’s unique and complex flavor profile.

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.
