Brazil Coffee Challenge Winners

Brazil Coffee Challenge Winners

The Special Matchup coffee challenge sponsored by Angels’ Cup took participants on a virtual journey around the largest coffee producing country in the world, Brazil.  During the adventure we stopped at some of Brazil’s most popular and famous cafés while learning more about their coffee culture along the way.

If you didn’t have the chance to embark on this virtual journey with us, don’t worry, you can take a quick trip through the special landmarks right now.

The journey started off at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro. Dedicated to the patron saint of Rio de Janeiro, Saint Sebastian, this Roman Catholic cathedral is located in the center of the city. Designed in a modern style based on the architectural style of Mayan pyramids, this is not your typical cathedral!

Next you are passing along side the Porto de Rio de Janeiro, one of Brazil’s largest ports for cargo and cruise ships. Pardon the construction dust, it’s undergoing massive renovations in preparation for the 2016 Summer Olympic games.

When you first walk in you may be confused by this innovative cafe. Not only has Curto Cafe invented its own lighter roast, but there are no prices here, the owners simply post the costs they need to sustain their business for the month and leave the rest up to the customers.
