Mmmmmm . . . do you smell that?
That is the smell of the perfect Café Cubano. One more time, deep breath . . . Yes! Glorious!
Everyone grab your "tacita", sit back and enjoy it!
YOU. DON'T. HAVE. ANY. CAFE????
**Kikita se desmayo!! (Kiki has fainted!!)**
**Mami holds a cafecito under Kikita's nose to revive her.**
Ok, so you don't have coffee to make espresso with. That's no problem, I'm sure you have regular coffee.
This is supposed to be the BEST part of waking up! Beyond that, it's supposed to be the best MOMENT at ANY time of day. It's the afternoon/after-lunch pick-me-up.
"It's terrible and wonderful at the same time! It's like freedom in a cup!"
Not to worry! I, Kikita, can help you! You know I have a guy (bueno, gal) on the INSIDE!
Through the magic of Facebook, I was introduced to a yummy new supplier.
I asked them for a sample and I couldn't wait for it to arrive in the mail.
When it finally did, it was an event!
(Isn't it beautiful? So full of promise!)
EVERYONE had to have a taste.
Everyone came to the same conclusion: RIQUISIMO!! (DELICIOUS!!)
So, I strongly encourage everyone to try Kaña's Hialeah Blend (espresso grind) and then come back here and Learn How to Make Cuban Coffee OR you could get CRAZY and Learn How to Make Cafe Con Leche. Either way, you gotta try this coffee.
I know you won't regret it.
In fact, you'll probably start singing (the way we all did when we had our first taste) . . .
