Origin Story

Multiple producers (Sumatra, Kenya)
Las Rosas Women's Group (Colombia)
Capricornio Coffees (Brazil)

This crowd-pleasing blend is rich and smooth, highlighting a deep-toned Lintong coffee from small garden farms in the Lake Toba region of Sumatra, which offers nuances of sweet grapefruit and aromatic wood. This coffee, like most cultivated in Sumatra, is processed using the wet-hull method, contributing to its unique flavor profile.

Then, we add a fully washed coffee from Kenya that adds elements of brightness and helps bring out the flavor of other coffees in the blend. Kenya has one of the best systems for compensating the highest quality lots; registered buyers taste samples weekly and then compete at auction where the best tasting coffees are rewarded. Because the auction lots are so small, our partners purchase many lots of similar quality and then, through a complex grading process, create the consistency we need for use in the blend.

Another fully washed coffee from Colombia helps to round out the blend by adding silky hints of nut, milk chocolate and spice. The coffee is produced by 300 members of the Association of Women Coffee Growers of West Huila (Asociación de Mujeres Cafeteras del Occidente del Huila), whom make up the Las Rosas Women’s Coffee Project. The project is a multiorganizational effort intended to support the Las Rosas Women’s Group through economic prosperity, social empowerment, and coffee quality. Over the past six years, the women of Las Rosas have showcased their ability to grow and prosper, becoming a source of inspiration for their community.

We finish the blend with a natural processed coffee produced by our partners at Capricornio Coffees. Grown in Brazil’s Norte Pioneiro growing region, which straddles the Tropic of Capricorn, one wouldn’t think the region is suitable for high quality coffee production but, the terroir is outstanding, and the unusual latitude is offset by moderate growing elevations, a broader range of seasonal temperatures and outstanding agricultural practices.

Why We Love This Coffee

Our namesake blend features coffees from some of the world’s best known growing regions, and together these coffees create a smooth and complex blend. Equator Blend is roasted in a way that makes it versatile – dark and robust enough to stand up to the addition of milk, yet sweet enough to drink black. We love it so much that we feature it on batch brew at all of our cafes!
