Expert Tips

Cortaditos are extremely sweet. Adjust sweetener to your taste.

Directions

  • 1 With a traditional Cuban coffee maker, add water to bottom half. Add coffee to filter and tap gently with the back of a spoon. Replace filled filter in coffee maker and screw top on tightly. Over low to medium heat, brew the coffee on the stovetop. It should take approximately 3-5 minutes. Be sure not to overcook the coffee.
  • 2 Put the 4 tablespoons of sugar in the bottom of a creamer. Once the first 1-2 oz of coffee has brewed, remove coffee maker from heat and pour coffee into the creamer. Replace to stove so that the remainder of coffee can brew. Meanwhile, mix sugar and coffee together until a paste forms.
  • 3 Once coffee has finished brewing completely, pour all coffee into the creamer and stir until a slight froth appears. Pour in individual coffee mugs.
  • 4 Add warm, evaporated milk to each mug until there is a 50-50 ratio of coffee to milk.
  • 5 Enjoy!

Vanessa Bell Cuban coffee is a staple in our diets. Starting at a young age, I began drinking café con leche (coffee with milk) with my family. I enjoyed café cubano (Cuban coffee) after dinner with the adults when I was a bit older, too. But the cortadito cubano is a special coffee recipe that was made on special occasions and enjoyed by almost everyone. Like café con leche, cortadito coffee is half coffee and half milk. However, this Cuban coffee recipe is made with evaporated milk, which makes it extremely sweet and decadent. Try this cortadito coffee recipe after your dinner party one night instead of a typical dessert. Your guests will love it!
