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.
Fazenda da Lagoa is situated 1,100 meters above sea level near the town of Santo Antonio do Amparo, about 170 kilometers southeast of Belo Horizonte in the province of Minas Gerais. The farm of 2,850 hectares is comprised of a natural reserve, woodlands, pastures, and 1,500 hectares of coffees. Streams from 40 natural springs water the land and gradually converge into two small rivers that mark the borders of the grounds.
This place of exceptional beauty is a haven for diverse flora and numerous animals. To conserve this natural environment and preserve its ecological balance for future generations, all activities on the farm are carefully monitored. Sustainable principles guide all cultivation and processing practices on the farm. By protecting healthy soils and rivers and producing sustainable coffee, Fazenda da Lagoa aims to be an inspiring partner to neighboring rural communities.
At Fazenda Da Lagoa, coffee cultivation is much more than a business – it’s a lifestyle. Several generations have been dedicated to creating excellent coffees for the pleasure of people all over the globe. Only Arabica varieties such as Catuaí, Mundo Novo, Acayá and Catucaí have been selected and are grown on the plantation according to strict sustainable principles.
