Coffees with Character

Time for a traditional coffee

Coffee production in Brazil accounts for more than one third of the coffee sold around the world, so it comes as no surprise that this is one of the most common drinks in Río de Janeiro. For better or worse, its history is closely linked to its cultivation. One of the most traditional places to enjoy Brazil’s famous coffee is Restaurante Café Lamas (www.cafelamas.com.br), on Marquês de Abrantes Street in the Flamengo neighbourhood. With more than 100 years of history behind it, the 1980s saw a number of Brazilian intellectuals and trade unionists debating country policies around its tables. It offers a wide selection of traditional dishes, and even after-coffee drinks. Yemanjá, situated very close to Ipanema Beach on Visconde de Pirajá Street, is another sure-fire coffee hotspot in Río de Janeiro. Here the coffee is a delicacy, only served after dinner during the week, but throughout the day at weekends. On Laranjeiras Street in the Laranjeiras neighbourhood, don’t forget to visit Mercado São José das Artes. This company owns a number of bars, offering coffee with a friendly atmosphere where you can spend the hours chatting away.
