1/2 Photos of Café Con Leche
Halcyon Eve's Note:
A popular Spanish coffee drink, often served at breakfast. The proportions should be equal quantities milk and strong coffee. The ingredients and instructions include making the coffee with a French press, but you can substitute any very strong brewed coffee or espresso. I wouldn't recommend instant coffee or decaf as neither would likely be strong enough. The scalded milk will be sweeter than fresh milk, so keep that in mind when adding sugar. This recipe is from mrbreakfast.com. Times are estimates.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Place coffee in bottom of prewarmed French press. Add boiling water, replace lid (without lowering filter), and allow to brew for 5 minutes.
- 2Meanwhile, place milk in a small saucepan. Bring just to boiling point (the first larger bubble breaking on surface), then reduce heat to barely simmering. Simmer gently for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until coffee is done.
- 3After the 5 minutes are up, depress plunger on press to strain grounds. Divide coffee evenly between 4 mugs. Add hot milk to each cup in equal amounts to coffee.
- 4Sweeten to taste. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon, if desired.
