Our Family's Farms
Nossa Familia Coffee founder Augusto Carneiro's great-grandfather and his three brothers planted the family's first coffee crop in 1890. Nestled beside an ancient volcano in the Brazilian highlands, the farm was a half-day by horseback to the local train station and eight hours on the train to reach São Paulo!
Finca San Jerónimo Miramar
The owner-operators here treat the environment, employees, & community with great care. Much of the farm is a nature reserve. An on-site lab researches natural methods to reduce fungi and pests in coffee.
They also operate a dairy, producing cheeses & creams. The cows (and the nutritious compost they make) are a key part of the regenerative farm system.
San Miguel Escobar Cooperative
The San Miguel Escobar Co-op (in Spanish, Café Artesanal San Miguel Entre Volcanes de Antigua) is a 30-member community of smallholder coffee farmers near Antigua, Guatemala. Situated at the base of Volcán Agua, San Miguel Escobar is located in a scenic, vibrant valley with views of other neighboring volcanoes Fuego and Acatenango. The town is home to many coffee farmers, whom you can see on a typical day heading up the slopes of the volcano through the communal paths to tend to their fields of coffee or other crops.
Cold winter weather outside and we have a delicious aromatic coffee to look forward to each morning. So delicious!
Have been steadily ordering 2 lbs. of Full Cycle/month for about 6 years. Never get tired of it, and while I once in a while venture out, haven't found anything I prefer. I grind it espresso and brew it in a breville bambino. While I of course can't make anything comparable to the lovely baristas at Nossa stores, I have to make due because I live in Illinois and only get to visit every so often. Thanks people at Nossa!!!!
Great coffee, great service, great prices!!
Love Nossa Familia!!
I’m happy to say that this is the best all rounder coffee I’ve ever had. From aeropress to cold brew and even the old drip machine. It’s nice that a proceed of my purchase goes to making cycling better as well. I bought the 5 lb bag and I plan on subscribing as well as making the local Nossa Familia coffee house my new third place. Please make more cycling jerseys so I can represent on my rides!
I make only espresso, so fresh coffee beans are important to me. I'd heard of Nossa Familia because a local bakery served Full Cycle. I was looking for options at New Seasons and saw that they had it with an acceptable roast date. At Christmas, I sent Nossa Familia to various relatives, noticing that I got free shipping with 2 bags. So I started ordering my own. Since it comes very fresh, 2 at a time is acceptable (I go through a bag in 6 days). But now the free shipping threshold has gone up to $40 and I don't want to buy 3 bags at once. So considering options, such as driving out to the roastery. Picked up my last bag at the cafe at NW Lovejoy & 13th and got to sample their espresso. Full Cycle makes great espresso. Ideal balance brightness vs bitterness for my taste. And I find I don't have to modify the grind as much over the 6 days as with some other coffees I've used, to maintain my desired extraction time of 25-30 sec for 30g brewed coffee from 20g ground.
