Among the things that make Brazil popular, the quality and selection of its coffee is surely among the top of the list – so if you’re visiting Brazil right now and are wondering what to do (which is odd by itself), you should treat yourself to some of the magnificent flavors of coffee it offers, and experience the product from one of its original sources.
Coffee has played a major role in the history of the nation, and if you ask any of the locals they’d probably be able to give you a good insight of how the coffee industry in Brazil came to be.
You should also know that Brazilians have a lot of tradition related to coffee – not only do they have various ways to prepare it in their books, but they also have some traditional rules by which they abide when drinking coffee. If you want to make the most of your experience, make sure you familiarize yourself with those traditions so that you can blend in better.
For example, Brazilians value the talk during a coffee session. They don’t look well upon the idea of the hasty coffee meetings people have to get a quick cup over a few sentences of mindless chatter – when you’re talking to your companions when drinking coffee in Brazil, always make sure you share your most precious recent moments and truly savor the experience. Respect the others and ask to be corrected if you did anything wrong.
