    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

    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!  [​IMG]

    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!
