Origin Story

Aklilu Kassa & Biniyam Aklilu Kassa (Ethiopia)
Multiple producers (Kenya)
Las Rosas Women’s Group (Colombia)

The French Laundry Blend is built around an intensely fruity dry-processed coffee produced by Aklilu Kassa and Biniyam Aklilu Kassa on their farm located in the village of Kellenso Mekonissa in Southern Ethiopia’s Guji region. After ripe coffee fruit is harvested, the cherries are spread out on raised screen beds to dry in the sun naturally.

A pair of fully washed coffees from two of the world’s most renowned coffee growing countries add complexity to the blend. The first, a vibrant and citrusy coffee from Kenya, complements the other components beautifully and contributes to the blend’s delicate acidity. And finally, a coffee from Colombia balances out the blend’s other components with rich flavors of baking spices and bittersweet chocolate. These coffees, along with just the right degree of roast, create a tremendously well-balanced blend that can be enjoyed in the restaurants of one of the world’s best chefs.

Why We Love This Coffee

French Laundry is Michelin star Chef Thomas Keller’s world-renowned flagship restaurant, located in Yountville in the iconic Napa County, California. Years ago, Equator, in collaboration with Chef Keller, created a special blend to compliment the restaurant’s environment and outstanding food. Today, The French Laundry Blend is one of our most beloved coffees, able to be enjoyed both at its namesake restaurant and directly from our roastery.

As we do every couple of years, Chef Keller and Equator revisited the blend and lightened the roast degree. This newest iteration of the blend is one that expresses fruit notes more distinctly while retaining the sweet-toned chocolate characteristics and balance of flavor that are familiar.
