“Coffees from Brazil”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

If you don't know about the coffee "terroir" , you can drink coffee from distincts brazilian areas and try , in my opinion, the best, " chapadão do ferro".

No other place better describes Brazilian history - the Portuguese in charge during colonial era, then the strong British influence on architecture and coffee market, the transition between monarchy and republic... And present day!
Recently remodeled and turned into a museum by Santos City Hall, this palace is also a stunning journey into culture and economy.
Today Brazil ranks #1 in the world again in coffee production and export... You'll see, smell and taste all that in the museum!

“Cool history and great coffee drinks!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

A friend brought me here and it was better than I expected. The coffee drinks are very fancy, delicious, and unique. You can get a coffee caipirinha and a coffee/orange juice combination. Small gift shop too.

“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.
