What I should really do is catch up on some posts, especially about our trip in July to Fazenda Cachoeira, an organic coffee plantation in the south of Minas Gerais. But in the meanwhile, this will have to do.
Sebastian has a wonderful friend named Ian. One time my husband mentioned to Ian's dad that he loved coffee. Ian's dad is related to the owner of Academia do Café (which by they way, this process of making the connection to how you know something is SOOOOO Mineiro [something that people from Minas Gerais do]) and highly recommended a visit. I visited their website the other day, and found this great video from Michael Palin's visit to Brazil in 2012. I love the shots in the Mercado Central, and the fact that he ONLY visited Academia do Café while he was in our town. Enjoy!
