COFFEE CAN BE A FORCE FOR GOOD
Equator Coffees was founded on the belief that coffee can be roasted better, brewed better, and, most importantly, it can be sourced in a way that makes lives better. Founders Helen Russell and Brooke McDonnell began roasting and selling coffee out of a Marin County garage in 1995, and that garage marked the beginning of a high-impact coffee company focused on quality, sustainability, and social responsibility.
Equator was named after the region where coffee grows, but has come to mean so much more than that. As they trace the path from source to sip, they try to make everything they touch better. From people to planet. Because they believe coffee can do more than just taste good. It has the power to do good too.
