OUR OFFICIAL COFFEE COMPANY

MEET BUILDOUT CALIFORNIA’S OFFICIAL COFFEE COMPANY

Every construction team starts their day with someone putting on the first pot of coffee before the first shovel meets the ground.  We invite you to start your day with a cup of Equator Coffee. A true California success story!

 

“In 1995 we had a big idea: make people’s lives better through coffee. Thanks to our community of producers, roasters, baristas and supporters, that idea has become reality in the two decades since.”

HELEN RUSSELL AND BROOKE MCDONNELL

Founders of Equator Coffee

When Founders of BuildOUT California first met Helen, Brooke, and Maureen McHugh (Executive Vice-President), the connection was immediate.  As Helen mentioned during their very first meeting, every pound and every cup of coffee is part of a story which is founded on a blend of quality, sustainability and social responsibility.

 

It was no surprise that out of millions of small businesses across America - Equator Coffee became the first LGBT-certified firm to be named the Nation’s Small Business of the Year by the United States Small Business Administration under the leadership of President Barack Obama.
