Meet Dan Sibomana, who traveled from Kigali, Rwanda to work with Equator in our cafes as part of our Barista Exchange Program. Dan spent time in all five Equator cafes learning management and barista skills from our amazing retail team. Dan shared beautiful stories with our community about the farms he works with and brewing coffee for the women who work tirelessly to grow top quality for all of us to enjoy.

"I have a big suitcase that I am taking home of knowledge that I got from Equator Coffees"

CHAIN of WelL Being

Our philosophy on coffee is built from a question: how do we create value from our perch in the coffee supply chain, standing at the intersection between local and distant coffee communities? It is this question that continues to frame our narrative as we strive to grow a business that values the stakeholders in both communities with respect for the people, the process and the product. We love that coffee is our connection and we hope you enjoy this glimpse into our world.

"So many hands touch this product, and that's why we call it a chain of well being." 
-Helen Russell
Co-Founder & CEO Equator Coffees & Teas
