Origin Story

Multiple producers (Sumatra, Kenya)
Federación Campesina del Cauca (Colombia)

A wet-hulled coffee from Sumatra gives the blend structure by adding depth and flavors of sweet-toned aromatic wood. The wet-hull method of coffee processing is only practiced in Sumatra and a few other locations in Indonesia, and results in distinct flavor profiles unique to the region. The parchment layer of the coffee bean is removed before the coffee is fully dried, which imparts the distinctive, sometimes earthy flavor characteristics.

We then added a fully washed coffee from Kenya that adds brightness and fruit flavors to the blend. Like Sumatra, coffees from Kenya have a unique flavor profile that cannot be found anywhere else, but it’s Kenya’s auction system that truly sets it apart. Registered buyers taste samples before bidding on them at auction, competition drives prices up and the best tasting lots are rewarded. Equator works in partnership with a registered buyer who identifies and bids on select lots that meet our specific flavor expectations.

We finish the blend with another fully washed coffee produced by members of Federación Campesina del Cauca, a cooperative representing six smaller coffee farmer organizations located in the rollings hills of Cauca, Colombia. It was founded in 1971 with the mission of serving small producers, giving them access to agronomy training and developing young leaders in the community. The group maintains a membership of approximately 700 small producers, 29% of which are women.Together these coffees combine to create a smooth, approachable blend that’s perfect for pairing with a pastry or sipping after a meal.
