Academia do Cafe in Belo Horizonte, MG. Brasil


 Well, I've returned from another fantastic trip to Brasil, this time mostly in Belo Horizonte where I spent several days at Bruno Souza's new coffee lab and teaching facility, "Academia do Cafe". This is a state of the art facility equipped with a San Franciscan sample roaster as well as a Probat L-15, He also is working with La Marzocco, Bunn brewers and grinders as well as demonstrating the many methods of extracting great brewed coffee.
The classes were taking both experienced as well as novice baristas through the world of coffee, from harvesting and production, roasting and cupping and finally drink preparation, from the basics to latte art and machine maintenance. Check out pictures from the classes I was involved in and yes, we were filmed for the local TV station there, they were doing a feature on the up and coming speciality coffee scene in Brasil and the new, young baristas that, like here are in the forefront of the "New Wave movement".
