Equator Coffees - Alligator French Roast
What better way is there to say farewell to Fair Trade Month than to enjoy a cup of Alligator French Roast by Equator Coffees on the last day of October?
I first experienced "Alligator French" about four years ago when an office mate brought some to work to share. She had purchased it from a fundraiser at her church in Marin County. I said, "this is like no French Roast I've ever tasted."
Equator's Alligator French Blend is described by them as "Robust Earth Tones, Smoky Tropical Wood, Prunes and Walnuts."
It's dark roasted from Ecuador, Ethiopia and Sumatra. It's no surprise that Roast Magazine named Equator the 2010 Roaster of the Year.
And, of course, it's Fair Trade Certified by the C.C.O.F. Because Fair Trade coffee is not meant to be enjoyed only in October, but year-round.
