Sharing language is one of the best ways to share who we are. Our curious words, habits and phrases go a far way in communicating our traditions.

My word of the day is BOERETROOS. The meaning of the word “boeretroos” is coffee, although the literal translation would be “farmer’s comfort”. To me coffee is much more than a caffeine shot to get you going in the morning. It is about sharing and hospitality. It is about finding comfort in a silent moment. It is about getting to know others during the ritual of having coffee. And I would like to get to know you by sharing who we are. What is your “boeretroos”?
