The aroma of a freshly-brewed Brazilian coffee is a true inebriant experience. It’s the kind of smell which can make Expat’s memories fly back home and bring to their soul a warm and homey feeling of comfort.
This family coffee recipe was kindly shared with us by an Expat friend, Andrea Sealy, who was born in the United States, raised in Venezuela, and at 17 relocated with her family to Brazil. She is currently living in Rio de Janeiro with her husband and their two young children. She is a full time mom and writer, and passionate for her expat lifestyle, family and friends.
