Blueberries!!?! Where do I get some?!

I've lived here for two years and have never seen a blueberry.

LOVE the blog. Thank you for your enthusiasm.

Hey, Jim!

Thanks for stopping by!

For my money, I'll forgive a lack of blueberries for the opportunity to buy passionfruit for less than $5. *8-)

Hi ! Loved the blog ! I am carioca and live in Milwaukee, Wi.

I loved the 2016 caipirinha !!


I was googling for my friend, and came across his post on this site! Hmmm how could that happen? I have become a Caipirinha fan- but am running low on my Cachaca- where to find some in Northern California??????

I'll definately enjoy the addition of blueberries-but should have bought that wooden mortar and pestel on Tortuga Beach when I had the chance-

Miss you Jim-xoxoxoxo

About Cachaçagora

  • Hi. My name is Phil Gomes. By day, I work at a public relations firm as its senior vice president of digital integration. I'm a proud SF East Bay native who currently lives in Chicago.

    I was introduced to cachaça by my wife, a Carioca. Her mom, in turn, is the president of the Confraria de Cachaça do Copo Furado, a group that meets monthly to talk about Brazil's indigenous spirit. I participated in one of their meetings when I vacationed in Rio in July 2008.

    This started me thinking about the basic question of whether cachaça in the U.S. is today where, say, tequila was some decades ago.

    So I decided to start this blog as a means to record and share the cachaça-related items I've been seeing day-to-day. I hope to be sharing recipes, impressions, and random thoughts as the U.S. continues to catch on to the potential for this particular spirit.

    Oh... The name? "Cachaçagora" is a portmanteau of "Cachaça" and "agora", which is the Portuguese word for "now". In Greek, "agora" also means public square. I hope to meet the expectations of both.
