  • Ground Espresso Coffee Cafe La Llave
  • Refined Sugar Domino
  • Water To your liking
  • Evaporated milk To your liking


  1. Put water in the Electric Espresso Machine (The more water you put the weaker & lighter the Espresso will be).

  2. Place your ground Espresso Coffee into the Coffee filter holder. I like to fill it up and pack it down a little.

  3. Let the Espresso Brew.

  4. Once it finishes brewing, pour the desired amount of Cuban Espresso into a cup of whichever size you desire.

  5. Pour as much or as little Evaporated milk as you’d like.

  6. Stir some sugar in there all while singing “Azucita Pal’ Cafe” By -El Gran Combo
