Palavra related web site www.casadapalavra. The puncuation on the
title may be wrong. I have tried the normal search engines with no

industry there

Hello, there,

I guess something might be wrong. The ISBN you provided matches no
title with Casa da Palavra?s online catalogue. (Actually, I couldn?t
find any book with that ISBN in any of the book finders engines I
tried).  No title with the word ?café? in it is in the publisher?s
catalogue either. There might be hundreds of Brazilian books with the
word café in its title, do you remember anything else, such as a
subtitle? Maybe the author? Another possible publisher?

I?ve found two titles that could be related to the subject of the one
you?re looking for: O Café -na historia,no folclore, nas belas-artes;
Magalhães, Basílio de; Cia. Ed. Nacional. ?O Cafe no Estado
Nacional?;Lima, Noraldino; Depto. Nacional do Café. Could any of these
be the one you?re looking for? Thanks for your help.

I was shown the book on a recent trip to Brazil. I carefuly copied
down the ISBN and thought that is all I would need. It is a book about
the coffee industry in Brazil. The author has conections with the
large farm "Vista Alegre Coffee" and the Brazilian Specialty Coffee

Do you think it was a recent book, or something published a while ago?

I found this listing of a book published in 1986:

O café, a dívida externa e a modernização do Brasil :1824-1864
Author(s): Doin, José Evaldo de Mello.  
Publication: Franca [Brazil] : Universidade Estadual Paulista "Júlio
de Mesquita Filho," Faculdade de História, Direito e Serviço Social,
140 p.

Does that ring a bell?

I think you may be on to it at the site under comments below O Café ?
Ambientes e Diversidade. I suspect it is the first one you list, the
one from brazil. I think it is between it's 2nd and 3rd edtions. I
think you are getting close

Hi there,

I'm glad the full title enabled you to find the book.

The full title of the book is:
?O Café ? Ambientes e Diversidade?

It is mentioned on a Portuguese webpage, a machine translation of the text is:

"In II the Brazilian Meeting of Coffees Special the book was launched
"the Coffee - Surrounding and Diversity" of Fulvio Eccardi and
Vincenzo Sandalj (President of the Specialty Coffee Association of
Europe - SCAE), the book was edited initially in English and now it
was translated into Portuguese, it has 238 pages and it traces a
complete panorama of the universe of the coffee and extends ours
horizontes of this culture of utmost importance."

Search keywords:  cafe "Casa da Palavra"

Best wishes,
