5 Fine Coffee Bars In São Paulo @coffee_lab_br @rodolfoherrera @ppedrososdiary @biobarista
The offerings at Sofá are much like you’d find in a contemporary cafe in London or Los Angeles. Think carefully pulled espressos, filtered brews via AeroPress and Hario pour-over, and cold brew. At present, the roaster Regina Machado is sourcing beans from the regions of Cerrado Mineiro, Matas de Minas, Espirito Santo, and the west of Bahia. Here in Brazil, where legislature does not allow imports of unroasted coffee from other countries, progressive roasters like Sofá must look inwards towards the best of what the country has to offer. This means collaborating with small landowners and incorporating different processing methods to offer a diverse, yet entirely Brazilian menu of coffees. It’s a constraint, to be sure, but Sofá Café’s dedication to quality does not suffer one bit.
