Velocity serves Carabello Coffee, roasted locally by Justin & Emily Carabello. Bags of their whole bean coffee are available for sale as well.
Carabello Coffee started in a Newport, KY garage in 2009 with only a hot air popcorn popper and a few pounds of green coffee beans. From there, the Carabellos have grown their home business into a way to help fund non-profits and charity work.
The Carabellos moved their roaster into Velocity in the Fall of 2011 and very quickly outgrew their small 10 x 10 space. The success of their roasting business enabled them to open their own coffee shop in Newport, KY two years later. The Carabellos are very active in their community and also with their philanthropic efforts in other parts of the world. We will always be proud to be part of their "story".
