Equator Coffee Almonte

What We Do

We are a small-scale roaster located just outside of Ottawa in a little town called Almonte.  That’s where we roast all of our coffee; it’s also where we have a cafe and our offices.  In December 2014, we opened up cafe in Ottawa (Westboro Village) but the primary focus of our business is and has always been roasting and wholesaling coffee to cafes, restaurants and grocery stores in the Ottawa Valley and beyond.  Our coffee is 100% organic specialty coffee.  We source directly from small-scale producer cooperatives through our own roaster-member co-op, Cooperative Coffees.  Co-op Coffees is a green coffee importing co-op made up of 23 like-minded roasters throughout North America.   Through the co-op, we are privileged to have direct, transparent, and sustainable relationships with our trading partners.

Equator's Original 10k Toper Roaster

How We Began

Equator Coffee Roasters was founded in 1998 by Craig and Amber Hall. Craig had just completed a degree in International Development from Trent University where he learned all about the exploitation of small-scale farmers in the coffee industry.  He also saw the beginnings of a Fair Trade Movement hoping to make a difference in that industry. He wanted to take part in it. Craig realized that by providing high quality fair trade and organic coffee, we, the privileged North, could begin to help our neighbours in the South, thus “Equate”ing the benefit for all – inspiration for our name! Craig, Amber, and the Equator team continue to work directly with farmers and have visited cooperatives in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, The Dominican Republic, Peru, Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda.

We love beautiful things.  Shoes, jewellery, home decor.  We sell unique, hard to find brands like Fly London, Miz Mooz & ART.

We are Colleen Hewitt and Christine Hemsley. After owning our own shops, we decided to knock down the wall in between us & create one big shopping experience.

Visit us at Heritage Court on Mill Street.  Stop and have a Crepe at Mill St. Crepe Company and wander the lovely stores that are our neighbors.
