  • 1 Shot Espresso (Cafe Bustelo or Columbian ground coffee beans)
  • Cup Cream or to taste
  • 1 tsp. Demerara sugar (or raw sugar)


  • Brew your coffee ground in an espresso machine or with a standby Moka pot. This works better if you use Bustelo coffee which is very popular with people from Puerto Rico and Cuba. You can add a little bit of coffee into a small shot glass and add your sugar and use a mixing tool to make it frothy. A battery-powered coffee mixer is perfect.
  • Now add this to your brewed coffee. Add a splash of cream and you’re ready to enjoy this sweet coffee drink.
