¡buenos días Miami!

Hide your coconuts and Cuban sons (over the age of 18, of course) because Ladytiger is loose in paradise. It sounds sexier than it really is: all I’ve really done is go to the beach, sleep and drinking lots of Café con Leches.

Forget what you know about American coffee. That’s just spit in a cup compared to this deliciousness. Originally from Spain, Café Con Leches are similar to the French style Café au Lait, which simply means, in both cases, coffee with milk. The question is, in terms of taste, where does the milk come from?

Here’s my uneducated guess:

If you’ve ever been to Miami and gazed upon the gorgeousness that are Latin American men, a gringo like myself may venture a guess that every time a café con leche is made, a very handsome man sticks his finger inside the hot brew for a dash of added sweetness. This is folly and a rather porntastic fantasy. In truth, what makes café con leches taste good is the type of water and coffee you use.  It is also recommended that you use a stovetop espresso maker, one that looks like this:

Or you can go here and have someone make it for you because they are the best café con leches in the world according to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.
