Mos Cafe con leche

It’s supposed to be a pretty ugly day in the Atlanta area, thunderstorms all day and through the night.  So what better way to spend it than with a nice warm mug of coffee?  It has been pretty hot lately which usually calls for iced or frozen coffee drinks and this will be a nice change up…coffee wise not  weather wise :).

Cafe con leche with Caramel

  • 4oz Pilon or Cafe Bustello brewed espresso
  • Several tablespoons white sugar (this is up to you and your tastes)
  • 8oz heated milk
  • Caramel sauce

-Begin making espresso in an espresso machine and add only the first few drops of espresso to the sugar; mix vigorously. This results in a creamy, light brown paste.  Once finished brewing, add remaining espresso to the paste and mix.  Pour the hot milk into the espresso/sugar mixture.  Drizzle caramel sauce, amount is up to your liking, into coffee  and let dissolve from the bottom.

This is one drink that is sure to warm you up and wake you up!
