New About Us


FOUNDED IN 2001

Founded in 2001

Velasquez Family Coffee was started by Guillermo and Cathy Velasquez to sell the high-quality coffee grown by family members in the mountains of Honduras. Our sales here ensure them a livable income and support their effort to protect and enhance the precious cloud forest ecosystem where they farm.

Our coffee is shade-grown, hand-picked, sun-dried, freshly roasted in small batches by a local Minnesota roaster, and fair-trade. In fact, we have always been what is now prized in the specialty coffee business as “direct-trade.” Our priority is supporting our family members and so we pay above fair-trade prices.
