KIMA – A drink everyone needs to try!
KIMA is my absolute favourite soft drink on the Azores. The KIMA is a fizzy drink made from maracuja (passion fruit). Being all BIO I should not encourage drinking sweet, fizzy soft drinks – but KIMA is simply amazing. Everyone I made to taste KIMA loved it.
As far as I know, KIMA is produced in factory Cervejas e Refrigerantes João Melo Abreu in Ponta Delgada. This factory is also a brewery.
It is very strange, that even though KIMA is loved by everyone it is almost impossible to buy in smaller grocery stores. However, it can be found on the drinks menu of every restaurant under the name of „Sumo de Maracuja” in the „Sumo” (fruit juices) section.
I highly recommend trying this delicious drink – even if you normally don’t like fizzy drinks.
And I have great news!
In a small cafe I have had the pleasure to try the pineapple flavoured KIMA and it is divine! It is at least as good, as the original maracuja (passion fruit) flavour, if not better.
This is the address of the cafe in Ponta Delgada where you can try this incredible soft drink:
Rua Dr.Gil Mont Alverne Sequeira n.11
