You need to know what you’re going to ask. It’s an important issue.
I had a friend that came to Portugal and wanted to ask for a simple coffee with milk, not very hot and just with a little coffe – the adventure begins!
Coffee can have many names in Portugal. First you have to know is that Coffee usually it’s an espresso. Coffee it’s a café in Portuguese.
- In Lisbon – coffee can also be a “bica” or a “italiana” (a short coffee).
- In Porto – coffe can also be a “cimbalino”.
It’s enought? No… Let’s start…
- You can order a coffee cheio (the full cup) curto (short, small, strong) or duplo (duble x 2 times one cup of coffee);
- You can have it in a chávena quente (hot cup) or in a chávena fria (cold cup).
Now the names:
- If you order decaffeinated – it’s like a coffee with less caffeine,
- a carioca – more water than coffee,
- with cheirinho – with alcohol (usually marc)
- mazagran – coffee with ice usually in a tall glass
Now the varieties with milk:
- pingado – Coffee with a just a little milk,
- garoto/pingo – Milk with coffee (it’s important if you want it lighter “claro” or darker “escuro“. if you wanted darker you ask “direto“)
- galão – tall glass with coffee and milk,
- meia de leite – big cup with coffee and milk
- capuccino – a big cup with coffee + milk + milk foam
- moka – a big cup with milk + chocolate + milk + milk foam
Now… a nice picture of all you can get. Next time you know what to ask for. Have fun!
And don’t forget to ask with a “pastel de nata”
It will always be an inspiration
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
“After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.”
