Velasquez Family Coffee was started by Guillermo and Cathy Velasquez to sell the high quality coffee grown by our family and friends in the mountains of Honduras. This ensures them 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, The Twin Cities Daily Planet, 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.

We are excited to be able to partner with Regions Hospital to support the work of their Cancer Care Center. Your purchases of Velasquez Family Coffee between November 25 and January 17 can be designated to support the fine work of the Center. Simply choose the "fundraiser" price option when selecting your coffee in our shopping cart. And indicate "Cancer Care Center" in the notes at the end of your order. $4.00 from each 12 oz bag and $2.50 from each 8 oz bag purchased in this way will go to the Center.
