The origin of Equal Exchange coffee

More than three decades ago, Equal Exchange brought Café Nica to the US market to demonstrate solidarity with the fledgling people's movement in Nicaragua. The relationship between Equal Exchange and our partners at what became PRODECOOP agricultural cooperative has survived war, embargo, revolution, counter-revolution, and devastating weather events.

What do our roast names mean?

At our solar-powered roastery in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, our worker-owner team batch roasts and conducts production cuppings daily to bring out the best characteristics in each harvest. With four primary roast levels, we think there’s a favorite here for everyone.

Medium Roast: expect the unique citrus, nutty, fruity, or floral notes of each coffee to shine through.

Full City Roast: you’ll get a bit more of the caramel flavor that comes from the roasting process.

Vienna Roast: starts to bring the smoky aroma and smooth and rich body of a darker roast.

French Roast: with the natural oils fully expressed, it’s an intensely dark and smoky experience akin to dark chocolate.
