Our story

Where It All Began

In 2013 Equiano coffee was born and the Udosenata family set out to follow their passion for roasting and serving coffee. With a roastery in Eugene and a brand new cafe-style coffee tasting located in the city's newly revitalized Whiteaker neighborhood, the Udosenata's launched their new coffee company, "Equiano Coffee. 

The Coffee


As a competitive coffee roaster, Okon has placed second in Pacific Northwest regional roasting competition and sixth place in national competition here in the U.S.  He has also spent time in Colombia working small coffee farms and building relationships with specialty coffee producers there and other countries such as Brazil, Viet Nam, Guatemala, and the Congo (DRC).
