In the historic center of Curitiba, there is a “teaching cafe” – that is, it is a cafe in which the servers and those who prepare the coffee are students at the Escola Senac who are learning the art of presentation and serving of a good coffee. The students also learn how to prepare appetizers and sweets. When the server brought my cappuccino to the table, it looked like this:
We entered the cafe from another part of the historic building in which it is located. The building dates from 1916 and has been preserved as part of the historic patrimony of Curitiba. There was a beautiful door (not in use) near where we sat that I took pictures of, from both the outside and inside.
Looking out the windows of this ornate doorway, from where we were sitting, I could see the “tubes” that are waiting areas for city buses. Do you see the heart?
