Cafe Con Leche (Mexico)
(4 servings) Printable Version
While coffee is steeping, place milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring the milk to a low boil and immedietely reduce heat to a simmer - stir occasionally.
Back to the coffee... press down the plunger of your press to strain the coffee grounds. (If no press, use a fine strainer to remove grounds.)
Transfer hot milk to a serving pitcher. Add coffee to the milk.
Distribute the Cafe Con Leche evenly among 4 cups.
Add sugar to taste. A little cinnamon sprinkled in each cup is nice optional final touch.

At first, I thought this was lame because I always have milk and sugar in my coffee. But I gotta say... there's something about warming the milk first that makes it taste different and pretty cool. Warming the milk is a bit of a hassle when you're just waking up, but I'd make it again. Maybe just on the weekends when I have more time. Plus... a dash of cinnamon at the end is a must. My final summation: Muy Bueno!

Cafe con leche is not a Mexican recipe it is actually used throughout the Carribean.
