Origin Story

Nyampinga Cooperative (Rwanda)
Multiple Producers (Honduras)
Flor de Dalia (Nicaragua)
Café Granja La Esperanza (Colombia)

Presenting the latest edition of our seasonally evolving espresso blend, Eye of the Tiger. This iteration is built around a coffee produced by an all-women’s cooperative located in Southern Rwanda near the country’s border with Burundi.

We then added a coffee produced in the Comayagua region of Central Honduras. Comayagua is one of the areas in Honduras where coffee was first cultivated, and because of its optimal climate, rich soil, and dedicated producers, it remains one of the most productive in the country. This coffee contributes a cocoa sweetness and subtle nutty tones, bringing balance to the blend’s more assertive components.

The next coffee in Eye of the Tiger Espresso is a bold natural processed coffee from Nicaragua’s Matagalpa department. Flor de Dalia is a farmer’s cooperative that Equator has been buying from for the past six years. This year’s harvest contributes juicy citrus notes to the blend.

We finished the blend with a coffee produced at Cerro Azul, a coffee farm owned and operated by our quality-obsessed friends at Granja La Esperanza in Colombia. This Enano (Dwarf Gesha) variety gives a creamy body to this iteration of Eye of the Tiger Espresso.

Why We Love This Coffee

For those unfamiliar with the Eye of the Tiger concept, we do not attempt to maintain a fixed flavor profile for this blend, as we do with our year-round espresso blends. Instead, we work with in-season coffees to develop a blend that shows off the flavors of the component coffees in ways. Eye of the Tiger is the espresso served at our Oakland and Proof Lab cafe locations.

This version’s component coffees culminate in an espresso that can be enjoyed on its own as well as in milk-based drinks. We will roast this version of Eye of the Tiger only as long as the blend components last.

While there are many variables that contribute to dialing in espresso, here are the parameters that have been yielding the best results in our lab:

1:2.2 coffee to water ratio in 25-27 seconds.
