Cafe con Leche is a creamy hot drink made with espresso and milk. I enjoy mine slightly sweetened, but many people prefer it unsweetened.

It's easier to do than you think, and you don't need a fancy countertop espresso machine to do it.

A few years ago, my sister Jenny was on vacation in Spain with her husband. They both returned home with a love for Spanish Cafe con Leche.

They shared their love for this creamy coffee drink with us when we visited and I was hooked from that first sip.

I've never been a coffee drinker before, but that changed as soon as I tried CafƩ con Leche. The next morning, when we came back from visiting, I ordered my own espresso maker on the stove and a milk frother.

For the past 5 years, I have been brewing my own cafƩ con leche almost every morning. I love.

I have served this to friends and family on numerous occasions and have been greatly loved. I have a couple of friends who joke about visiting me again and staying longer, just to enjoy this every morning.

This is not simply a substitute at home for fancy coffee coffees, this drink embarrasses those coffees.

WHAT IS COFFEE WITH MILK

Cafe con leche is Spanish for coffee with milk. It is a hot coffee drink made with espresso and scalded milk in an approximate ratio of 1: 1.

Sugar is added according to taste. I like mine pretty sweet and my sister prefers hers just slightly sweetened.

THINGS YOU NEED TO MAKE COFFEE WITH MILK

Kit: 6 cups Bialetti Moka Express espresso machine or 3 cups Bialleti Moka Express espresso machine (recipe instructions are for 3-cup size, double ingredients for 6-cup size) * 1 milk frother, i use this simple battery powered vaporizer

* Please note this is an espresso machine, not a regular coffee maker. The "3 cups" size produces just 6 ounces of espresso, enough for 1 large cup or 2 small cups of latte.

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon of good quality espresso, I use Lavazza1-3 teaspoons of sugar (if I have it at hand, I use this homemade vanilla sugar or unrefined sugar) .2 / 3 cup of milk

HOW TO MAKE COFFEE WITH MILK

Fill the bottom of the 3-cup espresso pot with water, just below the valve. (If you use a 6-cup saucepan, double the ingredients.) Place the filter in the pot and scoop 1 tablespoon of espresso into the pot.

Screw the top half of the espresso into the bottom half and then place the filled pot on the stove burner. Place it with the handle to the side of the burner, so it doesn't get too hot. (You will still need a hot pad!)

Set the burner to medium (medium high on my current stove, but I used medium on my other stove). In about 10 minutes, the espresso will have passed through the filter and filled the top of the pot. Remove it from the heat as soon as the pot is full, don't let the espresso boil or it will burn.

While the espresso is heating, place the sugar in a large cup or divide it between two small cups.

Pour the milk into a large 2-cup measuring cup and microwave for about 90 seconds. Or if you are using the stove to blanch the milk, start at a low temperature when the espresso starts.

When the espresso is finished, pour it over the sugar and stir for a few moments to dissolve the sugar. Froth the milk until it has doubled in size and then pour the frothy milk over the coffee. Stir to combine. Serve hot.

For more homemade drinks that are better than the cafeteria, try this homemade chai tea or the London Mist. This Italian cream liqueur is a great favorite when the weather also cools down. This Mint Mocha Latte and this Caramel Caramel Coffee are on my list to try soon.

Cooking tip: I use this stovetop espresso machine and this milk frother to make this recipe.
