Candelario’s Coffee unique story begins in the Western Mountains of Copan, Honduras. This is where our founder, Kevin Candelario, was born. He was raised by his grandparents, Maria and Candelario, who were second-generation coffee farmers. Growing up learning about coffee and seeing firsthand how much care and dedication his family put into each batch fascinated him.

Kevin later moved to the United States at the age of nine, knowing he would always honor his heritage and background. Shortly after graduating college, Kevin decided to start a business that would do just that. With his first steps happening on a coffee farm, he knew Candelario's Coffee would honor his background for years to come.
