New Brew

A number of fabulous cafés have opened up in São Paulo in the past few years, which is what you would expect in a place where coffee is so ingrained into the fabric of local culture.  This past week-end we stopped at recently-opened Octavio® Café

I particularly enjoyed one of the coffee offerings that is brewed the old-fashioned way right there in front of you at your table. The ritual provided a rather nostalgic feel which reflects a trend I'm seeing more often of keeping things real.  Another interesting example that sometimes in order to find something new, a good place to start is in the old.
