Coffee with Milk

Coffee with milk, known as “Café con Leche” or “Café Lechero” in México, is a favorite coffee drink served at the legendary Gran Café de la Parroquia, a café and restaurant in the Port of Veracruz.

Place the coffee in your espresso maker following the manufacturer’s instructions (they vary depending on your coffee maker type).

INSTRUCTIONS
