Coffee Break

Freshly brewed by Marta Azevedo Silva

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.

Coffee Facts – Kindly sponsored by our own Benoit Vivier
is a term which could refer to the origin of a coffee, a coffee maker, a special preparation of coffee or a cake. The name ‘moka’ originates from a port in Yemen which imported and exported coffee from Ethiopia. From Yemen, most of the coffee was then shipped to Cairo (the first main trade market place for coffee) through the Arabic Peninsula, which gave its name to… Arabica.
