FELIPE SARDI of EQUATION COFFEE
Felipe oversees quality at each of the Equation farms: La Palma y El Tucán and DelAgua in Colombia; and Creativa in Panama. We first partnered with La Palma y El Tucán in 2017, lured by their impeccable coffee quality, only made sweeter by ethical practices, charitable hearts, and interests in sustainable farming.
Since we have expanded our offerings from Felipe as they have expanded their operations into other parts of Colombia as well as Panama. While La Palma y El Tucán in Cuninamarca produces exclusively washed coffees, Delagua in La Sierra Nevada, Colombia and Creativa in Chiriquí, Panama produce the juiciest natural processed coffee. All however push the flavors of their coffees with the implementation of highly regulated and tempered fermentations.
They also have partnered with their surrounding coffee producing neighbors to educate them on best practices, providing quality coffee trees, and purchasing their coffee from them at 2-4 times the price they were getting prior to partnering with Equation. In this way, the local farmers keep the family farms and their dignity as some of the best coffee producers in the world. Additionally, the Neighbors and Crops program provides education for their families and other community resources to keep families farming for generations.
