Brazil is the world’s largest producer of coffee beans but until a little while ago it was quite hard to drink good coffee in the country. Brazilians usually drink filtered coffee with lots of sugar. When they order a cappuccino, they expect it to come with cream and cinnamon… But things are changing rapidly. One of the new places in Rio to drink seriously good coffee is Kraft, in Ipanema.
Don’t be surprised to know the owner is Australian. Nowadays, Australia (and New Zealand) leads the world when it comes to preparing a good cup of coffee. And at Kraft it is done to perfection. The beans are roasted in-house and the milk is fresh. To accompany there is a selection of brunch food served all day long and power juices to go along. It is probably the only place in Rio serving a real flat white (as Starbucks does not count) and sourdough bread. A gem!
