This sweet, rich coffee launches with the fragrance of flowers and a hint of citrus. In the cup, cocoa and almond intertwine with spicy notes. Smooth, full-bodied, and balanced, it presents a sweet and feisty profile like its namesake, Camila, the daughter of Nossa Familia’s owner.
About Smallholder Members of Peru
This coffee comes from the Aproeco cooperative, 474 member farmers growing coffee in the middle of the Amazon jungle since 2002. Working at first with ProNatur (Promotor of National Agriculture), an organization that promotes sustainable agriculture, in 2008, they founded their own co-op.
To date, 270 members are certified organic coffee producers, and Aproeco continues its intense program to improve its coffees. For the last 5 years, their cupping lab has sampled each lot delivered to the co-op, which has helped identify the highest quality coffees. They’ve also begun roasting coffee, something that is quite new in the region, selling it in country under the name Cafe Kuntu. This also helps them understand and address the variables that affect the ultimate flavor of their coffees.

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.
