Coffee Fundraiser to Support 5th Graders & Outdoor Education Week
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.
