Last week we were taken out to coffee by Johan van Zyl, the editor of Visi magazine - and a whole new coffee planet was revealed. Vida e caffè has a short menu in Portuguese that lists coffee the way I like it. Coffee the way I beg for it, and for which I must contort my sentences in Starbucks and Various in New York:
Espresso marked with foam; espresso + whipped cream; espresso + steamed milk; espresso + 1 part milk, 2 parts foam; espresso + water; espresso + milk and cap of foam; espresso + Lindt chocolate +milk...
And then they deliver it just like that. The way they said it would be.
Baie dankie, Johan!
