|The Portuguese people are famous for taking coffee breaks. In the morning, in the afternoon or at the end of the day. There are no rules.|
Just between us, many times the expression “let’s have a coffee” is an excuse for us to pause and chitchat.
This is the objective of this newsletter: a triweekly energy boost on EENA’s updates and a recap of what happened in our community for you to read over a coffee.

“Legend has it than an Ethiopian herdsman named Kaldi discovered the coffee plant circa 850 A.D.
As the tale goes, his goats became crazily energetic after nibbling on the small, red fruit of a bush.”
