It can be perfectly used with traditional methods of brewing, as well as espresso machines, depending only on the grinding.

The brand delivers an undecided taste and aroma swaying between fermented and fruit hints in its formula.

Pilão, a Brazilian coffee preference, is a leader in its national market and the most widely, best-known brand in the country.

An agreement with Sara Lee Corporation in 1970 aided Pilao to become one of the top 5 Brazilian coffee trademarks of plain roasted grains (also minced) coffee in the Globe.

    You know I am coffee addicted, and I do not need much persuasion, so you may be sure I am going to try this if I can find it in the supermarket. Just today I bought a package of Ethiopian coffee and I remember I saw a package of Brazilian, but do not remember details. I followed the link and see in your another text that this is sold on Amazon. So does this mean it is not available in supermarkets? I am in EU. Thank you.

      Hello, Jovo,

      Thank you for stopping by. What I know is that some supermarkets have Brazilian mojo in the imported products section, but I could not tell in your area. You might be able to find more accurate local information on the internet, tho. It is a great idea for zillions of local Brazilian coffee dealers posts tho. I will research the possibility of that. You gave me a great idea, thanks.

    Nice education on the Pilao coffee. I have had several varieties of coffee from Brazil but I have not yet tried this one. My favorite coffee beans are the ones that are dark roasted. I guess the Pilao must be good if it has been around so long so I am going to order some today. What other Brazilian coffees are your favorites?

      Hello, Scott,

      Thank you for stopping by and your remarks.

      On a regular basis, I drink 3 type from 2 different brands of Brazilian Brewtus, almost every day. Commercial Pilao coffee for my all day around brewing.

      I also drink 1 or 2 Nespresso coffee pods. Usually, a Dulsao do Brasil, if just a demitasse, or Roma, if I’m going “dopio”. 🙂

      Other everyday commercial brands and specialty coffees you may like are Cafe Caboclo, Cafe Melitta, Cafe do Ponto (reviews coming).

    I tasted this coffee about 10 years ago on trip to Rio, while visiting some friends. I loved it! I didn’t know you could buy it here. That’s great news!

    I use Pilao Tradicional (ground) with Brikka, at home and at work. It is a great coffee. I think I will always keep it in my inventory. Recently I tried Pilao Nobre (ground) with Brikka but it does not produce good cream like Pilao Tradicional and I did not like its taste after Pilao Tradicional.

    I am expecting Pilao Espresso (beans) along with Cafe do Ponto Exportaçao (ground) next week. I can share my experiences within several weeks. I live in Istanbul.

    So far I tried Cafe 1820 (beans and ground) and Cafe Britt Tarrazu (beans and ground) with Brikka.

    We found this coffee in the international section of the grocery store, on sale. Unfortunately or fortunately, we tried it and are addicted. It has a deep and smooth taste. It is really nice to enjoy coffee for its taste.
