Nossa Familia Coffee’s owner, Augusto Carneiro, spent much of his childhood on his family’s coffee farms in Brazil. Filled with a deep sense of pride for the beautiful work his family had been doing in Brazil for over a century, he started bringing his family’s coffee to share with the community in Portland. The company started slowly and unconventionally without a cafe or even a roastery, instead focusing on relationships. The company has evolved since its inception in 2004: the roastery opened in 2012 and Espresso Bar in 2013. Since the beginning, Nossa Familia Coffee has expanded beyond the family line to bring you coffees from other families and co-ops in different growing regions of the world. Nossa Familia’s deep roots in family and direct trade, social and environmental responsibility, and the utmost coffee quality will always remain strong.
