One of the stops in our lunchtime food tour of Lisbon takes you back to the time when producing coffee was a family craft with the selection of beans, roasting processes, wood was done by hand and blends were kept secretly in the family tradition. Flor da Selva still maintains all these characteristics to produce a unique coffee. Receiving coffee beans from small producers from Angola to Guatelama, Flor da Selva is a family business that innovates. In the 1950s they were pioneers in establishing expresso machines in chique Lisbon coffeeshops such as Brasileira in Chiado.
Flor da Selva is the only remaining traditional coffee producer in Portugal. Their attention to detail, special blends and unique wood fire roasting method makes their coffee a real treat and a visit a true lesson in all things coffee.
