Coffee For Sale
Every year EXPO Elementary 5th graders are given the amazing opportunity to spend five days in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area at Camp Widjiwagan. Students learn a variety of outdoor and life lessons while surrounded by the incredible backdrop of the BWCA. This year we are introducing a new fundraiser to help ensure that ALL EXPO 5th graders are able to participate.
Guillermo and Cathy Velasquez, a local Saint Paul family, started Velasquez Family Coffee in 2001 wishing to share their expertise of offering high-quality coffee grown by their family with Minnesotans. The coffee is shade-grown using environmentally friendly farming practices, the coffee farms are small, and the farmers who plant, tend and harvest the coffee are fairly compensated for their hard work with fair-trade prices. The coffee is shipped to Minnesota and roasted in small batches by a master roaster.
