12oz / whole bean / free shipping

Decaf drinkers drink for taste, not for affect, and they will not be disappointed with this syrupy, silky coffee. The smooth, balanced cup presents milk chocolate, hazelnut, and hibiscus notes with a lingering brown sugar sweetness and cinnamon aftertaste.

Meet Diogo Machaedo

Nossa Familia means “our family,” and this decaf is not just processed with the patented Swiss Water Process, it comes directly from family trade relationships. This gives them exclusive control of sourcing, price, and quality of their decaf, which translates into the cup. The beans leave fourth-generation coffee grower Diogo Machaedo’s award-winning Fazenda Recreio as regular caffeinated beans. They arrive at Nossa Familia in Portland, OR, and then are sent to the Swiss Water Decaffeination plant in Vancouver, BC, emerging as chemical-free, flavor-rich decaf beans.

As an added bonus, this decaf is comprised of a special lot of Peaberry beans, a naturally-occurring anomaly in which coffee cherries contain only one seed instead of two. Some coffee aficionados are of the opinion that these peaberries, so named for their more rounded appearance, are just a bit tastier than their twinned counterparts, perhaps due to receiving all the nutrients rather than having to share.

Sul de Minas, Brazil

As the name proclaims, this region is found in the south of Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Here the hills are rugged and rolling, climate is sweetly mild, and rainfalls kiss the coffee trees with just the right amount of moisture to coax the best out of the beans.

Sul de Minas is home to some of the largest coffee estates in Brazil, yet more than half of the farms in the region are small to medium-sized (10-150 hectares), and smallholder farmers have grown coffee there for generations. Due to their presence, this particular region has many more cooperatives than other regions of Brazil.

Within Sul de Minas we also find sub and micro-regions (Carmo de Minas, for one) known for specialty coffee production. As farmers leverage their climate and soil to grow better coffees, we should see even more micro-regions on the cupping tables. The usual processing methods for this region are washed, pulped natural, and natural.

Nossa Familia Coffee

Frustration and pride may seem like strange bedfellows, but when Brazilian-born Augusto Carvalho Dias Carneiro (bottom left in the team photo) became disillusioned with engineering, his thoughts and heart turned to his family’s award-winning coffee farms in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, where he grew up and his family has grown coffee for over a hundred years.

Nossa Familia, "Our Family" was born in 2004 as a way to share his family coffee with Portland. At first, Nossa partnered with a local Portland roaster and built up a loyal following, then opened their own roastery in 2012 and an Espresso Bar in 2013. Nossa Familia recently became Oregon's first certified B Corp roaster, earning a certification that recognizes the hard work and love that roots this family business.
