Spit out that Four Barrel/Blue Bottle/Ritual garbage juice you're drinking right now, because you could be sipping $15 pour-over on a once blighted strip of Market Street where the only thing being injected these days is capital.
The coffee in question comes from the trendy Berkeley-based purveyors at Equator, and its $15 value is derived from admittedly unique and special origins. Well, value is really related to someone's willingness to pay for it, which we don't doubt or judge!
From Equator's website:
Finca Sophia is a coffee farm owned by our very own Helen Russell and Brooke McDonnell, along with Willem Boot of Boot Coffees, and our former Director of Coffee, David Pohl. Located in the highlands of Panama at an altitude of 2,100 meters (making it one of the highest altitude farms in Central America), Finca Sophia was founded in 2008. It is planted solely in Gesha—pairing this legendary coffee variety and the extreme altitude—with the goal to yield a one of a kind coffee. After years of planning and preparation, we are finally ready to release the inaugural harvest of Finca Sophia
And, for your potential morning routine, keep in mind that Equator is conveniently located near a new $6,000 apartment at 6th and Minna — a series of words that seems to no longer contain an inherent contradiction.
