Family owned: seed to beverage

Portland, Oreg. may be weird, but they know how to brew.

A Portland family has taken the next step from owning a coffee farm in Brazil to opening up their own coffee shop, Nossa Familia.

“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,” (Owner Augusto Carneiro says). “At our espresso bar, our customers will experience what we do from seed to cup.”

Carneiro believes this is the first coffee shop of this kind with no middleman standing between the production and sales.

And since I will be in Portland in about three weeks, I may just have to visit this family-owned cafe.

How does production of the beans change how you view about coffee? Comment below.
