We recently visited south Florida to see family over the holidays. While I was there, I had breakfast with a friend at the Empanada Factory, which I highly recommend. The food was amazing and the coffee addicting.
Ever since that breakfast, I have been craving more cuban coffee. For those of you who haven’t had cuban coffee, think of a shot of espresso, add a little bit of heaven, and there you go.
I recently found out that some family members are going to buy me a cuban coffee maker for my birthday. I can’t wait.
Stephanie makes fun of me because I have “too many toys for coffee.” You see, she doesn’t drink coffee. Truth be told, I have a regular drip machine, a french press, solo press, pour over and an espresso machine. They are all wonderful ways to make coffee and really do meet different needs. As my father-in-law says, “it’s the right tool for the right job.” And he would probably agree because he drinks a pot of coffee a day…
But, on to more important matters. Today, while packing up our Christmas decorations and putting them back in the attic, I craved some Cuban coffee to help me perk up. I searched online and found a way to get close. It’s not as good, but not that bad of an imitation.
As I do with almost everything I eat, I took a picture just to share with everyone. Enjoy.
