Equator Coffee

Equator is Barrhaven’s newest café and the community could not be more excited. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s located adjacent and attached to Indigo! Equator Coffee is a local Ottawa success story and we are so happy to have this café here in Barrhaven. They believe that coffee is more than just a beverage; it is a way of changing the world. They have been roasting, delivering, and serving fresh, fair trade, organic coffee since 1998. Did you know the name Equator was chosen for a reason? To “Equate” the benefit of drinking coffee, not just for the consumer but for all the people along the way, from their staff who pack and serve it, to the farmers who grow it.

What to Try?

Definitely start with a coffee. Whether you like a simple drip or a fancier latté every cup is perfection and the staff take the time and care to ensure this. On this particular visit, we sampled a flat white – so simple yet perfection.

PRO TIP: Stop into Indigo first and buy that book that you have had your eye on, order the perfect coffee and treat, then sip the afternoon away as you enjoy your new book.
