Review

This is yet another prominent city café in A Brasileira's line-up. It shows its age a little more, eventhough it still dominates a prime city corner near the Praça da República. Older and a bit worn, inside it displays dingy mirrors and aged chairs on two levels. Using a old, plain-looking, two-group Gaggia, they pull shots with a great aroma. It has a rich, dark brown crema of considerable body, and the cup is weak only on flavor - which is a little mild and missing pungency. Flavorwise, its light herbal flavor is accented by some woodiness. A mere 0,55€ served by old school wait staff.
