No Cuban meal is complete without a café cubano (Cuban coffee). A well-made café cubano has a thick layer of sweet crema (cream) floating over strong espresso. To get the crema right, whisk about 1 tablespoon of the espresso with sugar until it turns foamy, then pour the pot of espresso over it. Lourdes Castro says you can't overbeat a crema, so stir it energetically.
The Coffee Pot, sometimes called the Koontz Coffee Pot, was built in 1927 by David Berton Koontz to attract more customers to his service station next to Lincoln Highway/U.S. Route 30. in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Now the Bedford Coffee Pot, it sits in its restored glory at the Bedford County Fairgrounds.
Wow, did not know that Cafe Bustelo is the best selling espresso brand in the US! Also that the company is moving into the refrigerated beverage market with the Bustelo Cool. It is a cuban-style cafe con leche made with intensely flavored coffee (Cafe Bustelo espresso) that is sweetened with sugar and given a splash of milk. This will be exciting to try!!!
: ))))))) The secret to Cuban "cafecito," is the finely ground, dark roasted coffee beans used in the brew. Use a spoon to stir up the first few drops of coffee with the sugar in the pot to create a sweet, frothy foam – called "espumita." This will rise to the top when you pour the coffee in the cup.
