Northwest Portland roastery Nossa Familia Coffee is opening its first retail location, the Nossa Familia Espresso Bar, serving coffee sourced from the owner’s family farms in Brazil.
Owner Augusto Carneiro says this is the first retail coffee bar he knows of in the country where “the coffee stays in the family from seed to cup, with no middlemen in between.” Augusto launched the roasting operation in 2005. Nossa Familia translates to “our family” in Portugese.
“My family has been growing coffee for more than a century in Brazil and I am so proud to showcase the fruits of their labor,” Augusto says. “At our espresso bar, our customers will experience what we do from seed to cup.”
The bar will also feature some Brazilian food items, such as traditional cheese rolls (pão de queijo), and a gluten-free savory pastry. The bar shares space with the Nossa roasting facility, at 811 NW 13th Avenue.
