Isabela Rasposeiras is the very creative and inspiring person behind this bar/roastery/coffee company.
As a daughter of 'restaurateurs' she grew up in a world of food and drinks.
After winning Brazils first Barista Championship she became so addicted by this black drink she decided to open up this lovely place at the North side of Pineiros, Sao Paulo.
We first met via internet. As she's Brazil Aeropress distributor, we directly had a good link and a very good reason for me to visit her while I was over in Brazil last month.
The rise of Specialty coffee in Brazil is obvious and Isabela is a prime example how Specialty coffee should be traced, selected, roasted, packed and brewed.
So, for all Sao Paulo visitors who want to know more about coffee and have some quality time ; only one adress : Rua Fradique Couthino 1340.
Two great links :
Website of Isabela - veeeery nice!
