The Art of Drinking Coffee in #Portugal - Coffee drinkers are in for a treat, as this is freshly brewed even in the humblest of "cafés" and there are dozens of different varieties. 

Whilst an “espresso” or “bica” (a small strong back coffee) is the most popular, there are many variations - a “café cheio” or “bica cheia” is a full espresso cup; an “italiano” is a small coffee with extra hot water; a “cortado” is a slightly shorter measure, so stronger and with less water; a double espresso is better known as a “café duplo” or “bica dupla”; a “carioca” is a full small cup minus the strongest first two seconds of an espresso; and for a long black, or a large black coffee, you would order an “abatanado”.

Going the milky way, an espresso with a drop of milk is a “café pingado”; whilst a “garoto” has more milk, about 50/50 coffee-to-milk ratio still served in a small cup; and a “galão” is served in a tall glass with approximately 3/4 milk. You can also choose a “galão escuro” (dark) or a “galão claro” (a lighter one). However, ordering a “galão” after midday will provoke funny looks unless you’re over 80, as it’s considered a breakfast drink - so you might want to save face by ordering a “meia de leite” (regular cup which is half milk) instead.

But these terms are only the most common ways of ordering coffee, and you will need to spend an extended time in Portugal to learn the others... Enjoy!

Here's a close look at the 2013 Slingshot RPM. Construction is beefy and top not as you would expect from Slingshot. This 14m RPM had some serious pull in these light wind. Turning was super smooth and power delivery was extremely consisten. We are stoked on this kite and looking forward to more testing in the very near future.
