Honduras to Minneapolis

 
Our family grows shade-grown coffee in Honduras where they have noticed changes in their mountain climate that has impacted coffee production. Sometimes more, sometimes less rain than usual. Coffee flowering at irregular times… Velasquez Family Coffee was started by Guillermo and Cathy Velasquez to sell the high quality coffee in Minnesota ensuring the farmers a livable income and supports their effort to protect and enhance the precious cloud forest ecosystem where they farm.
Velasquez Family Coffee has been featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and in The Brief, a publication of the University of Minnesota. We were honored to be one of 14 finalists in the Neighborhood Development Center’s 2012 Annual Awards banquet.
