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

It would not make sense to have this special edition related to St.Patrick’s Day and not include a fact about our newest Irish member of the team.
Freddie’s day is divided between tea and regular coffee. About 3/4 cups a day of each of these drinks. Rumours say that on Friday and to end the week in a big way, the drink of choice is Irish coffee.
