Café con Leche...

I love Café con Leche...  I was in Miami today dropping off a vehicle at the port to be shipped to Haiti, and had the sensational pleasure of once again enjoying a cup of Café con Leche.  For you linguists that speak espanolo, you will quickly think of it as simply Coffee with Milk.  Yes and no.  From wikipedia...

"Café con Leche is a coffee-based beverage, which translated from Spanish, literally means "coffee with milk". Similar to the French café au lait and the Italian caffè e latte, café con leche is a Spanish coffee beverage consisting of strong or bold coffee (sometimes espresso) mixed with scalded milk in anywhere from a 1:1 to 2:1 ratio. It is also served with sugar mixed according to taste. The beverage is extremely common in Spain and in many Latin American countries and communities around the world. In the Cuban bastion of Miami, Florida, café con leche is a local staple."

If you haven't had it, you are missing out...  A Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha is one thing, but a Cuban Café con Leche is whole other thing.
