By chance this is the year of France in Brazil and Casa do Porto organized a professional business trip.
We took a nice T.A.M. flight to Vitoria where our friends greeted us at the airport and drove us (me and Carlos) to our hotel to drop-off our luggage.
Following, we visited Vitoria’s boutique and restaurant and had a “gargantuan” dinner of grilled fish, lobster with a group of friends which ended late.
The next day, Sunday, we went with TV crew and a group of journalists to visit a farm where coffee is grown in biodynamic technique. The charismatic boss Enrique showed that there are a lot of similarities between is way of making a good coffee and ours of making good wine. The other days were dedicated to interviews, professional tasting and meal with our importer’s clients.
We met a lot of people in Vitoria, Belo Horizonte and especially Sao Paulo. Many articles were already published and I realized that this big and beautiful country has a quality distribution network.
