Fricking miserable day here in Western Colorado, so I'm kicking back, still in my jammies and sucking down some con leche's that are so damn good, I couldn't keep them from ya! I've got nothing against a good cup a cowboy coffee, but these are a treat every once in a while.

Buddy of mine got me hooked on these and when visiting this past weekend, he gave me a stove top espresso maker which rocks and makes just over one cup of espresso.

Here's how I do it.
Using any good espresso ground coffee, packed tight as you can and brew.
Add 3 heaping T. of sugar to brewed espresso, stir to disolve. At this point, you have Cafe Cubano, or Cuban coffee which is damn good by itself I usually have a shot or two of this.

Heat 2 C whole milk,to scalding point.

Divide Cafe' Cubano equally between four or five coffee cups, add scalded milk. WOOO DAMNNN!!!

Give'r a whirl folks!

All the stuff



WaLaaa! Cafe Con Leche

The java looks great. We will have to give that one a try.  I roast my own beans and really enjoy a good cup of coffee. Cold and rainy here in So Ca too and we are in the motorhome at a lake drinking some great coffee and mimosas.  I see a nap in my future LOL

Quite the life for you two!  Lazing around in PJ's drinking fancy coffees and mimosas!  Must be nice.  You set a fine example of what Saturdays are all about -- keep up the good work! 


Walle, if I hadn't just finished my pot of coffee, I'd be all over that idea this morning.  I'll have to try that tonight or tomorrow.  Thanks for the post!

That's some good stuff, Tracey.  Luisa uses here espresso pot almost daily.  Even the decaf is good.
