A field study was carried out in the largest Brazilian city in order to evaluate the quality of coffee prepared and sold for out-of-home consumption, using a logit model. It was shown that the decision on coffee quality was taken by the coffee house owner or manager based on his perception of the socio-economical class of the consumers, the prevalent gender, the participation of coffee in the invoicing and the coffee brewing method.

Grapevine cultivars developed by Instituto Agronômico de Campinas known as 'IAC 138-22 Máximo', 'IAC Rainha' and 'IAC Madalena' were characterized to find a distinct genetic profile in order to facilitate patenting of a new cultivar. The characterization was done using the Expressed Sequence Tag Polymorphism (ESTP) methodology. From thirteen primers derived from EST initially chosen, nine amplified DNA fragments in sufficient quantity for sequencing, and only three gave different alleles corresponding to nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP). Although the SNP frequency of about 1.2 per locus, observed in this study was low, by analyzing the sequences it was possible to detect specific restriction sites for the differentiation of cultivars 'IAC 138-22 Máximo', 'IAC Rainha' and 'IAC Madalena'.
