WARNING: Serious enabling coming up...
Can you guess what my big plans are for this weekend? ;-)
Seriously. I'm DELIRIOUSLY happy.
Café con Leche
(need a coffee press for this one)
- 2/3 cups freshly ground coffee
- 2 cups water - boiling
- 2 cups milk
- sugar - to taste (Cuban taste requires LOTS of sugar =D)
Place the grounds in the bottom of your coffee press. (If you don't have a coffee press, you can get by with a glass pitcher.) Add the boiling water and allow the coffee to steep for 5 minutes.
While coffee is steeping, place milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring the milk to a low boil and immediately 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 Café Con Leche evenly among 4 cups.
