It is a Portuguese word that means, " a little coffee," but is often used in Brazil to have a much deeper meaning. It is a word that simultaneously
means, " welcome."
In Brazil, it's used by businessmen to signal that it's time to take a break in the negotiations. It's during this time that the two sides put away the work and get to know each other on a more personal level. They talk about what is truly important, FAMILY! So, please come in, relax, get to know OUR family, and Welcome!!
