Café Bombón is a sweet and creamy coffee drink that originated in Spain. It’s made by combining espresso with sweetened condensed milk.
Here’s how to make a great Café Bombón:
1-2 shots of espresso
1-2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk (adjust to taste)
Hot water (optional)
Cinnamon or cocoa powder for garnish (optional)
Espresso machine or a strong coffee brewer
Espresso cup or small glass
Sifter (for garnishing with cinnamon or cocoa powder)
Start by making one or two shots of espresso using your espresso machine. The coffee should be hot and strong.
In an espresso cup or a small glass, add the sweetened condensed milk. You can adjust the amount to suit your desired level of sweetness. Typically, a 1:1 ratio of coffee to sweetened condensed milk is used, but you can adjust it according to your taste.
If you find the sweetened condensed milk too thick for your liking, you can dilute it with a small amount of hot water and whisk it until it reaches your preferred consistency. This step is optional.
Pour the hot espresso over the sweetened condensed milk. The two layers will naturally form as the coffee is heavier and sinks to the bottom.
If desired, garnish the Café Bombón with a sprinkle of cinnamon or cocoa powder for a decorative touch and added flavor.
Serve your Café Bombón with a spoon. The layers of espresso and sweetened condensed milk can be mixed together as you drink to adjust the sweetness to your liking.
Enjoy your Café Bombón by sipping the rich and creamy coffee. The combination of sweetened condensed milk and espresso creates a delightful contrast of flavors.
Café Bombón is a sweet and indulgent coffee beverage that’s perfect for those who enjoy a creamy and rich coffee experience. You can adjust the sweetness by varying the amount of sweetened condensed milk, and you can customize the garnish to suit your taste preferences.
