Ready in 45 minutes

Known as a "Short one"! Popular Cuban Espresso in Miami. It's sweet, strong, but not bitter!


4 Tablespoons Coffee; Dark Roast, Expresso ground
1 Cup Water
4 Teaspoons Sugar; To taste
1/4 Cup Evaporated milk

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Note: You will need an espresso maker or a French one (about $25 at most chain home stores, Bialetti is our choice)


* Follow your espresso maker instructions to prep.

* Add sugar to container, or cup, where coffee brews on to


* Heat evaporated milk, to just at boiling.

* Pour over coffee to taste



You will have to experiment between the right balance of coffee and sugar, so you end up with a nice strong cup that is sweet and not bitter!
