Equator Coffee Roasters is leading the way in fair trade coffee. When they opened shop in 1998, they became one of the first Canadian coffee companies to use the fair trade certification system.
Based in Almonte, Ontario, Equator is committed to making a difference, globally and locally. That’s why their founders built the company on three main pillars: fresh roasting, fair trade purchasing and organic certification. From the consumer to the café staff back to the farmers who grow the beans, Equator makes great coffee a benefit to all.
Why We Love Them
A good cup of coffee can change your day. A great cup of coffee – well, we recommend that you try some of Equator’s goods for yourself to see how transformative it can be.
From dark to decaf to espresso and beyond, this java is world-class. Thanks to Equator, you can now enjoy it from the comforts of your own home. With each sip, it’s clear that the company puts love and attention into every roast they make.
Delectable flavours and aromas aside, we’re also really impressed by Equator’s devotion to sustainability, from both an environmental and a human perspective. It’s no wonder they won the 2016 Best Ottawa Business Award for Performance in Philanthropy. We’ll toast our roast to that!
