Equator Coffees & Teas
Having made a name for itself with cyclists and surfers in Marin, Equator Coffee and Teas finally made its move into San Francisco , dropping a chic industrial spot into the Mid-Market food-and-drink wasteland. They've got BOOZY coffee drinks exclusive to this location like the dangerously delicious Coconut White Russian, a “Naughty Brew” Irish-style coffee, and a boozy milk tea. They also serve arepas and salads.
Equator Coffee started as a coffee roaster out of a garage in Marin County in 1995. Today, as the first California coffee roasting B Corporation, they have multiple locations in the North Bay and SF with a focus on sustainable and transparent practices. Unfortunately, the SoMa outpost is still temporarily (?) closed since no one’s really going to work in office buildings these days, but you can still get your lattes, pour-overs, and tea (there’s a big selection), as well as breakfast sandwiches, croissants, and other pastries at the Fort Mason location, which (fun fact) used to be the gatehouse of the former military base and the newest spot, the Round House at the Golden Gate Bridge, a 1937 Art Deco building with amazing views of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
