STORYarticle-shape

Our flagship espresso was designed to highlight sweet, fruit-forward flavors found in the component coffees. The foundation of the blend is a rich, silky and balanced coffee from Huila, Colombia. For the past three years, Programa Mujer Cafetera Asociación De Productores Agrícolas De Timaná (ASPROTIMANA) has been working directly with women producers to establish coffee production from farms owned and managed by women. With the support of Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA), 53 women have emerged with the skills to process specialty coffee using their own micro-mills. After processing, ASPROTIMANA works with San Miguel, a family-owned export company based in Huila that focuses on bringing traceable micro-lots to the international market.

We then add a fully washed coffee from Kenya that adds elements of brightness and fruit flavors. Kenya’s system is one of the best in the world for compensating high-quality lots; after tasting the coffees, registered buyers compete at auction where the best lots fetch higher prices. These auctions are small, so our partners must purchase many lots of similar quality and blend them together through a complex grading system to create the flavor profile we need for our blend.

Finally, a natural processed coffee from Brazil rounds out the blend by adding depth, body, and flavors of berry and nut. Our partners at Capricornio Coffees work with producers in the emerging Norte Pioneiro growing region to produce a consistent flavor profile. Straddling the Tropic of Capricorn, one wouldn’t think the region is suitable for high-quality coffee production but, the terroir is outstanding and the unusual latitude is offset by moderate growing elevations, a broader range of seasonal temperatures, and outstanding agricultural practices. Together, these three coffees create a well-balanced, creamy espresso with a broad range of delicate fruit flavors.

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.
