12oz / whole bean / free shipping

This sweet, rich coffee launches with the fragrance of flowers and a hint of citrus. In the cup, cocoa and almond intertwine with savory notes reminiscent of forests and fields. Smooth, full-bodied, and balanced, it presents a sweet and feisty profile like its namesake, Camilla, the daughter of Nossa Familia’s owner.

De la Gente Association of Small Coffee Farmers (UPC –Unión de Pequeños Cafilcultures)

In the impossibly steep mountains of Guatemala’s Huehuetenango region, the 124 members of the De la Gente cooperative grow coffee on incredibly steep terrain. For these men and women, every day’s labor falls into the extreme category.

Membership of the De la Gente (Of the People) cooperative is about 50/50 women and men. Unusual in a male-centric culture, women have stepped into roles left vacant as job scarcity has led men to look for employment in the north in order to provide for their families. This is a huge milestone for women, and they are proving themselves not only equal to the challenge, but excellent coffee growers as well. In fact, some coffees harvested and produced solely by women available as separate, showcased lots through the De la Gente co-op.

Huehuetenango Highlands, Guatemala

In many places in the world, coffee grows in volcanic soil. Here in the Huehuetenango region in the western highlands of Guatemala, that is not the case. Located near Cuchumatanes, the highest non-volcanic mountain range in Central America, currents of hot air sweep up from Mexico’s Tehuantepec plain, intercepting the colder air flowing down the mountain and protecting the region from frost. This phenomenon, along with natural shade from the highland jungles, provides the perfect growing environment, allowing coffee cultivation as high as 2,000 meters.

The Guatemalan coffee grading system “defines the Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) grade to include coffee beans grown at elevations higher than 4,500 feet [1350 meters] above sea level, while the Hard Bean (HB) grade includes coffee beans grown between 4,000 feet and 5,000 feet [1300-1500 meters] above sea level.” The higher the elevation, the slower the growth and ripening, thus the denser the bean, rendering it of higher quality.

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.
