About San Miguel Escobar Cooperative of Guatemala

This coop's story is classic: coffee smallholders were making a mere 7-10 cents per pound for their coffee until Franklin Voorhes brought coffee processing knowledge and aid with financial backing in 2005, birthing the cooperative. Since then, more than 30 coffee farmers have joined the coop—including Filiberto Salazar, pictured here—working to produce impeccable, specialty-grade coffee.

Rather than blend their crops together, these growers bag their coffees individually, ensuring the unique taste of the soil, water, and climate interacting with the genetics of the coffee plants—its terroir—is preserved. Nossa Familia is committed to a long-term relationship with these farmers.

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.
