She introduced this recipe to my great grand father’s family and I can only imagine how those traditional Italian immigrants felt the first time they tasted it.

    Great article. I like coffee. As a matter of fact I drink coffee three to four times a day. I have never tried Brazilian black magic coffee. Are there any benefits from that mixture compound? Is it good for weight loss? I think I’m going to try this Brazilian coffee recipe with my friends.

    Keep up the good work.

      Hello, Karlo,

      Thanks for your kind words. Besides tasting good, I think you may get a little rush after the first or second sip, but oo much of it will probably get you drunk. haha. I have no information regarding weight loss unless its plain green coffee.
