We are always proud to feature coffees from Equation, with whom we are long time friends and buyers; not only are they delicious but Equation and their brand partners are fully committed to sourcing ethically and advocate sustainable practices in their local communities.
Equation was founded in 2019 and manages four other coffee-production and exporting projects, Delagua Coffee Paradise, La Palma y El Tucan, Creativa Coffee District and Flying Pumas. We are extremely fortunate to have visited and purchased coffees from all of Equation’s projects, and are constantly in awe of what these projects put out in quality year after year.
Equation also does direct sourcing for microlots with regional cooperatives in Colombia that are able to offer quality coffee to their clients all year round. Equation works exclusively with 10 associations in Risaralda, Tolima, Cauca, Narino and Huila, and prioritize working with cooperatives who engage in eco-friendly practices.
This natural processed Castillo microlot is produced by Yesid Ramirez at his farm Buena Vista in Huila. More than 144,000 hectares of coffee is planted in Huila, making it the most important department for the coffee industry in Colombia.
We were fortunate to cup this coffee in March 2023 at Delagua’s headquarters in Santa Marta, Colombia. This coffee stood out to us on the table as one that was sweet and structured and we are excited to bring this coffee back home to share with you as our next seasonal espresso.
