Coffee - Linking Portugal and Brazil

Branca was interested in the cultural legacy that Brazilian migrants brought to her hometown, Lisbon. She found out that coffee not only brought Brazilian people but also their culture to Lisbon. The Café "A Brasileira" (founded in 1905) played a relevant role in Lisbon then and is still a Lisbon attraction today.
