Obama agrees to have ‘cafecito’ with 76-year-old lady while visiting Cuba

The White House

Not everything about Obama’s historic visit to Cuba revolved around diplomacy, meetings with dissident leaders, and baseball. The most powerful man in the free world also made time for something that’s essential to the Cuban lifestyle: a cafecito break.

Of all things, President Obama had a Cuban pen pal before his historic trip to the island.

Who knew pen pals were so in?! Back in February, Lleana Yarza, a 76 year-old Cuban woman, sent a letter to the President saying that she heard of his trip and would love a chance to meet him:

“I heard last night by Telesur […] that you will visit Havana in March. I could not be happier to hear this,” Yarza wrote in her her letter, noting that she drank to his victory back in 2008. “I’ve written you many times introducing myself. Also I have invited you to a cup of Cuban coffee ay my place in Vedado, if and when you finally come,” she wrote.

He actually responded!


When the first flight carrying direct mail between the US and Cuba took off last week, it carried a very special envelope to Yarza: a letter from the President. In his letter, Obama thanked the Yarza for her continuous support and stressed that their mail exchange was part of a new chapter in Cuban-American relations.

Even more amazing? President Obama agreed to meet with Yarza!

By the time Obama finally set foot in Cuba, the first time a U.S. President had visited the island in close to 90 years, Yarza already had her answer in hand.
