Meet CNOC Outdoors, Sokol Blosser, & Nossa Familia
March is BCorp month, and what better way to celebrate than alongside our friends at CNOC, Sokol Blosser, and Nossa Familia — three fellow B Corps with a mission to create a positive impact for people and our planet.
As one of the Willamette Valley’s pioneering wineries, Sokol Blosser has played a key role in developing and shaping the now-prominent Oregon wine industry over the past 50 years. The winery remains family owned and operated, with the second generation now at the helm: siblings Alison and Alex Sokol Blosser. Achieving B-Corp certification in 2015, Sokol Blosser creates wines of world-class quality, produced in a sustainable manner, reflecting the distinctive flavors of the grapes, soil and climate. Their Tasting Room, located in the beautiful Dundee Hills, is open Thursday – Monday by appointment. Visit their website to make reservations.
Nossa Familia Coffee is a specialty coffee roaster founded by Augusto Carneiro, whose family has been growing coffee in the highlands of Brazil since the 1890s. Consistently named one of Portland's best coffee roasters, Nossa Familia is proud to be part of the B-Corp community, affirming a commitment to business as a force for good. Nossa Familia works directly with coffee farmers from around the world to source high-quality specialty coffee from origins like Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, Ethiopia and more. You can visit Nossa Familia cafes daily for coffee drinks, pastries, and freshly roasted coffee in Portland’s Pearl District and SE Ladd’s Addition Neighborhoods.
While backpacking and hiking are centered around the beauty and greatness of our wilderness, it seems to only make sense that a company making backpacking and hiking gear would do something to protect and preserve the places they visit. CNOC takes the widely known and beloved outdoor stewardship principle of “Leave No Trace” even further, to say “We don’t just leave no trace, we leave it better than we found it.” And this extends far beyond the way CNOC approaches rolling out new innovative products.

Looptworks partnered with Nossa Familia to create the Cafe Collection of bags made from twice-upcycled coffee sacks.
