ABOUT US 

We are lovers not fighters... specifically caffeine lovers. We thrive on coffee, tea, chai and serving our local community. We fuel each day on passion. We want to share this feeling with the world, with you, our friends, families, communities, coffee & tea lovers, artists, designers, musicians and locals. We want you to be part of that world, our life & welcome you into our home away from home. The Palm premises was based on the idea of a feeling... like you are on a vacation even though you may be on your local street. Each day is special, precious and you deserve the best version of it. Start it with a cup of our coffee & paint your day from there...

OUR COFFEE / Equator

Equator Coffees & Teas is a wholesale coffee roaster, retail operator, and coffee farm owner headquartered in Marin, CA. Founded in 1995 by Brooke McDonnell and Helen Russell, Equator's commitment to a sustainable, transparent approach spans more than two decades. Today, Equator operates five cafes in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration honored Equator by naming us the "National Small Business of the Year." Since its founding Equator has been a leader in sustainability and social responsibility.

Equator’s philosophy on coffee is built from a question: how do we create value from our perch in the coffee supply chain, standing at the intersection between local and distant coffee communities? It is this question that continues to frame our narrative as we strive to grow a business that values the stakeholders in both communities with respect for the people, the process and the product. Equator believes that quality underlies economic and environmental sustainability, and this is the pillar of our approach. We support environmentally sound certifications, as well as practices that produce the highest quality coffee while securing a dignified life for those who produce it.
