Sip a latte, savor a siphon, and discuss the future of third-wave coffee in Paraguay with knowledgeable baristas at Kafa Toastadores. One of the pioneers of specialty coffee in Paraguay, Kafa doubles as a small cafe and roastery specializing in micro-batches of El Salvadorian beans. Minimalistic with exposed brick and simple wooden furniture, the space is small but inviting and hosts events like jazz shows and ramen nights. Those that don’t want coffee can opt for fresh-squeezed orange juice or traditional cocktails like negronis. Pair your drinks with a brownie or muffin from the pastry menu, all prepared by the local artisanal bakery Ekchuah Patisserie.

Expert waiters run plates beneath the large tree at the center of Tierra Colorado, delivering grass-fed, 28-day dry-aged beef to eager diners seeking out chef Rodolfo Angenscheidt’s contemporary Paraguayan creations. The focus here is on colors, textures, indigenous recipes, and re-imagined European plates. Exceedingly fresh and sumptuous, the meals here garnered international gastronomic acclaim with mentions in the New York Times as well as Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Try dishes like the haddock pie with parsley sauce and the 16-hour cooked lamb that practically melts off the bone.
