If you’re looking for a full immersion in the world of Brazilian coffee, this is the place. Isabela Raposeiras, the renowned barista and proprietress of Coffee Lab, has created a quirky space here in Vila Madalena, complete with a Diedrich coffee roaster. That’s one of the best roasters in the world, FYI, and a wonderfully Heath-Robinson looking contraption it is too.
Fittingly, the café resembles a lab, with staff kitted out in overalls making coffee with a nerdy attention to detail. All that’s missing are the Bunsen burners, but there’s an array of coffee-making paraphernalia to make up for it: the coffee-zealot menu boasts all manner of brewing methods as well as beans, including a ‘ritual’ (R$9-$13) in which two cups of the same coffee are presented, one made with a French press and the other with an AeroPress.
Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 11am-8pm Sat
