In 1995 they had a big idea: make people’s lives better through coffee. Thanks to their community of producers, roasters, baristas and supporters, that idea has become reality in the two decades since. The realization that “Coffee can be better” inspired the founders to roast and sell coffee themselves from a Marin County garage in 1995. Coffee can be roasted better, brewed better and, most importantly, it can be sourced in a way that makes lives better. That garage became Equator Coffees and marked the beginning of a high-impact coffee company focused on quality, sustainability and social responsibility. Long before anyone thought coffee could embody any of those qualities. After two decades, eight cafes and thousands of cups of specialty coffee served, their impact has grown but their values remain the same.
