Reviews and Accolades

I depend on the relationships that I have spent years building with my purveyors. They are artisans in their own right, and their products are the best available. Equator is a small batch boutique coffee roaster that I have been working with for over 11 years. I worked with Brooke to create our very own distinctive blends for my restaurants and bakeries. I appreciate their sustainable approach to business and their attention to detail. It's important to consider every aspect of your restaurant, down to the smallest detail, such as coffee service, and think about how to always make it better.

"I start my day with coffee. Equator is my favorite."

Laura Cunningham, General Manager, The French Laundry


Helen and Brooke are completely passionate about coffee, where it comes from and how to best brew and serve it. I am in love with our Citizen Cake blend and learned so much more about coffee when we all worked together on it. The barista service on our espresso and coffee equipment is unbeatable for consistent coffee beverages. Thanks Equator!

Selling Equator Coffees and Teas distinguishes the South End Buttery from other cafes and helps us compete in a crowded market in Boston. Helen and Brooke's commitment to their customers is just as unwavering -- they even flew out from California to program our coffee grinder when we were having trouble with it!

Although the name Equator Coffee & Teas does not carry with it the large corporate brand recognition, both Jeff and Becci, after careful taste tests and investigation of many coffee companies, were profoundly impressed by that fact that The French Laundry, world-renowned Yountville restaurant, serves Equator at its five-star establishment. We felt: If it’s good enough for The French Laundry, it would be an honor to serve it in our little bakery on Champlain and Perrin!

Great Harvest Bread Co., Fresno, California


We are proud to feature coffee from Equator Coffees & Teas. We feel that Equator's strong history of social justice combined with an excellent product make for a coffee that you can be proud of as well.
