São Paulo may be one of the largest coffee-producing states in Brazil, but not many people know that the capital itself is home to a 10,000-square-metre urban coffee plantation (‘cafezal’), with 1,300 coffee trees planted in the grounds of the Instituto Biológico, right in the heart of the city.

On 24 May – National Coffee Day – visitors to the institute can celebrate the start of the harvest with the ‘Sabor da Colheita’ (‘flavour of the crop’) event. After breakfast and speeches, roll up your sleeves, grab a basket and head off into the plantation to help pick the red and green peanut-sized coffee fruits.
