“Not only for coffee lovers”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Coffee Museum is located downtown Santos at the historical part which for the past 10 years was reformed and restored. Coffee Museum was the historical Coffee Stock Exchange as Coffee was at the late 19th Century a huge commodity. The place is very well-preserved and you get a chance to know more about the coffee culture in Brazil and its influence for the development of Santos. The ceiling glass is simply astonishing. The museum doesnt take long to visit. After, you may have a chance to taste wonderful coffees blends with the powder roasted in front of you. The various sorts for a gourmet pleasure of coffee testing. It may not be the cheapest, but is a worth experience.

“A really really nice place to visit and have coffee”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

One of the nicest small museums I have visited in Brazil. It is very well kept and tells the story of coffee both in Brazil as well as in the same building (used to be the "exchange" where coffee was sold to exporters).
The coffee shop is very nice and the staff is really, really nice........I had the fortune of hearing a practical lecture on coffee from a very nice youg man.
I have to say that here is where I had the best capuccino of my life......and I have drank a LOT of capuccions in my life.

“Historic former Coffee Exchange”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Nice to see a preserved building, built in 1920, which displays the mahogany carved pit, with seats, where brokers bought & sold the coffee Brazil is só famous for. Very nicely preserved mural paintings of old Santos. Worth the visit.
