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).



 Add the water. Turn the heat up if using a stovetop espresso maker, or turn on if using an electric espresso machine.



 While the coffee is brewing, place the milk in a small saucepan and turn the heat to medium-high. Heat the milk, and once it comes to a boil, slightly reduce the temperature to keep simmering.



 Pour the coffee in a tall, thick glass, and in a gentle but quick stream, pour the milk in. This will cool down the coffee/milk mixture, it will form a layer of foam at the top of the glass. After this, add sugar to sweeten and enjoy your Coffee with milk!
