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.
