Ordering coffee in Lisbon

I had already heard that when ordering an expresso in the Lisbon area, they call it bica. I came across an interesting article the other day that explained that it comes from “beba isso com açúcar” — drink this with sugar, which I don’t normally. https://www.mundoportugues.pt/2018/09/14/a-origem-da-bica-de-lisboa-beba-isto-com-acucar/
