Ahh, the article brought back memories of my trying my first Bica at 11 years old, when my family and I travelled to the Azores, Medeira and then the mainland.  Now I am 26 and I think I just may have to return next summer with some friends.  We (my family and friends) are almost all Portuguese in Canada and coffee, here too, is a staple, as is a glass of port or wine in general.

If anyone has them, please post suggestions or information about espresso culture in Spain?  Is it the same as neighboring Portugal? I am travelling to Spain in late May.

My first of three trips to Portugal was in 1983 and the purpose was to visit Oporto and the Douro Valley for wine.  But I ended up spending as much time pursuing bicas and pastries and the lasting effect was that I purchased my first espresso machine when I got home. There isn't a lovelier place to walk about and enjoy espresso; thanks for the article and pictures.

Great article João, being Portuguese I was very happy to see such a well written and informative article on Portugal´s coffee culture.
I lived several years in Portugal and Italy and have travelled throughout the continent, especially southern Europe, so I can definetly say the Portuguese are second only to the Italians in good coffee brewing, especially when it comes to espresso. Many coffee shops have some way to go in terms of ambience as most are small smoke-free corner snack-shops.

What a wonderful article. Thank you! I lived in Cascais for a year a couple years ago and went into Lisbon frequently. My coffee beverage of choice was the cafe con leite. (Did I spell that right?) Sort of a cappucino. Usually 1 euro, and a good caffeine "hit" without having to nurse a large beverage. The weather was nearly always perfect, and I could sit in the town square and enjoy my cafe as the world went by.
Cascais has a McDonald's, and McDonald's in Portugal is the only place I've seen in the world where they don't serve American drip coffee. There's a little coffee bar on the side, serving the traditional Portuguese choices.
It was a thrill living there, and your article brought back happy memories. Thanks again.
