Originating in Sobradinho, Acorde 27 now has a sister store in Lago Norte. The new unit is already open and arrived there to supply the lack of an address specialized in specialty coffees.

“We’ve always looked to Lago Norte because it doesn’t have a special coffee shop. We have friends who live here, and who missed it, and at the same time, we would be closer to the Plano Piloto, allowing those who live a little further away to get to know and have access to our work as well”, said Marcondes, one of the partners at the space. .

To harmonize, customers can choose from the beers available on tap. The idea is to offer different labels each week, ranging from Ambev brands to DF producers. In the mytapp system, people serve themselves, are charged by the milliliters consumed and can enjoy tasting different drinks.
