Authentic Cafe' Con Leche (Coffee With Milk)

Authentic Cafe' Con Leche (Coffee With Milk) created by WhatamIgonnaeatnext

Posting for ZWT 5 as we zip through Spain so might as well make this educational AND entertaining: Coffee was once believed to cure consumption, dropsy, gout, and smallpox; AND--get this!--when mixed with milk--as in this recipe--coffee was believed to be a CAUSE of leprosy! Oh, no! :rofl: I think we've proved through many years of not-so-scientific daily coffee-drinking that this is not true. Enjoy a cup and rest assured, you will not be leaving any body parts behind when you've sipped the last drop! ("Cooking Up World History" by Marden & Barchers)

    I didn't know how bitter this would be. It wasn't bitter at all with instant coffee. I've never had Cafe' Con Leche before so I don't have anything to compare it with. I added a little creamer to mine. I made this for the Chocolate Tag on the Spain/Portugal board. Thank you for posting.

    I'm pretty sure I had this before! At first, I thought 1 teaspoon per cup would be enough, but it wasn't even though I drink my coffee black, with just a little milk. So for one cup milk I used one teaspoon coffee and one and half teaspoon of sugar.

    This was great! I made this for my daughter's teacher who goes on and on about how she LOVES cafe' con leche!! Well she was so happy that this was a good one! I took it to her in a huge air pump pot and she drank it throughout the entire day! Thanks for posting!
