Collaboration Coffees That Give Back to the LGBTQ+ Community
DRINKING GOOD COFFEE LEADS TO GOOD THINGS
Equator Coffees is a woman, and LGBTQ+ founded B-Corp certified coffee roaster that believes coffee can be a force for good. In 2016, Equator was celebrated as the first LGBTQ+ certified business to win the SBA’s small business of the year award.
Since our establishment in 1995 by Brooke McDonnell and Helen Russell, Equator has worked to build a community of farmers, roasters, baristas, and supporters, who are celebrated, supported and welcomed as they are.
FORCE FOR GOOD
Iconic culinary duo Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken may be best known for their Modern Mexican concept, Border Grill restaurants, trucks, and catering, which they've run together for more than 35 years, and Socalo, their new California canteen in Santa Monica. $1 from every bag of Mary Sue and Susan’s Las Rosas Colombia coffee will be donated both to the Los Angeles LGBT Center and Regarding Her.
A VISIONARY COLLABORATION
