TWO FAMILIES COLLIDE: VOODOO DOUGHNUT AND NOSSA FAMILIA CELEBRATE THIS SWEET UNION BY CREATING A COFFEE DOUGHNUT
PORTLAND, Oregon (June 14th 2018) – Participating Voodoo Doughnut locations have teamed up with Nossa Familia coffee, serving their Tedoro’s Italian roast. A full-bodied Italian, medium-dark roasted coffee, with flavors of cocoa and roasted nuts. An excellent pairing with you guessed it… doughnuts!
To celebrate this union, Voodoo Doughnut locations will be selling a signature Voodoo Familia coffee doughnut. A raised yeast doughnut dipped in vanilla flavored with Nossa Teodoro’s Italian Roast powder and drizzled with chocolate.
“Nossa Familia is built on strong community relationships, and we’re stoked to form a partnership with another company that is also deeply embedded and truly iconic in Portland. We’re looking forward to making magic happen together – and we have a lot of ideas that go way beyond delicious coffee and doughnuts! We are two brands that don’t take ourselves too seriously, and both recognize that it’s not just an outstanding product but also the fun and love behind them that keep people coming back,” says Augusto Carneiro, Founder & Chief Friendship Officer of Nossa Familia Coffee
“There’s fewer things in life that pair better than coffee and doughnuts. We know how important family is and finds ourselves lucky to welcome Nossa Familia into ours.” Voodoo Doughnut co-founder, Tres Shannon.
