The Cafézinho (small coffee) is the most traditional Brazilian hot beverage served in small cup. It’s very common to invite someone for a “Cafézinho” on the street, at home or in meetings.
Café, the Coffee plant (the family of Rubiacee), originating in Arabia is now present throughout the equatorial belt. There are about seventy different species, including the Coffea Arabica and Coffea Canephora which are widely known. The Arabic has an intense aroma and a mild flavor and deep. Contains a minimal amount of caffeine. The Robusta species is a vigorous, strong and full-bodied flavor and a higher caffeine content. The coffee plant has oval leaves, fragrant white flowers that grow in the shape of the bunch. Coffee berries, which contain the coffee bean, are produced by several species of small evergreen shrub. Once ripe, coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are then roasted, undergoing several physical and chemical changes to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. They are then brewed to create the beverage.
