Some of Carlos Palacio’s earliest memories formed in the tropical sprawls of Colombia and Mexico while sipping cafe con leche at his grandmother’s house.
“Just being Hispanic and growing up in Mexico and Colombia—[drinking coffee is]just part of the culture,” Palacio said.
His early relationship with coffee manifested into what would become Trio Craft Coffee—Palacio’s specialty coffee shop, which he runs with his wife, Susan, in Flower Mound.
“When we got married, we knew we wanted to pursue some form of family mission through business,” Susan said. “After seeking our own interests and giftings and heart, we … landed on a coffee shop as a really good fit for … a family mission.”
