It seems like you couldn’t be in Brazil for more than 5 minutes before someone offered you a cafezinho (Brazilian coffee). Another reason I should visit this fine country ASAP.

A cafezinho is a small, strong cup of lightly sweetened coffee brewed in a saucepan (SO easy) and poured through a cloth filter. I do not have the traditional Brazilian filter or holder for this, but a cloth filter (like CoffeeSock) and a pour over do the trick! If you don’t have a cloth filter, you can use paper.

As always, a few drops of Black Coffee Market Flavor Oils make this drink divine. These oils are still $5 off! Use code VEGGIEPASSPORT for an additional $2 off and a free gift with purchase on any Black Coffee Market order.I used caramel in this one.  

If you flavor use oils, feel free to use less sugar. Let me know in the comments how yours came out and tag me on Instagram


¾ cup cold water
1 heaping tbsp ground strong coffee
1 tsp sugar
Black Coffee Market Flavor Oils
Cloth filter (like CoffeeSock or substitute with paper filter) and pour over cone or sieve.

  1. Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan to just below boiling. Stir a few times to ensure the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the coffee grounds to the water, remove from the heat and stir well.
  3. Pour the coffee (grounds and all) through the filter, allowing it to drip into a cup or mug. This could be a slow process, but the slower the drip, the tastier the java (in my opinion).
  4. Add any flavor oils or nondairy milk, if desired!
