    Black please.



    Honestly though, I have not really found an iced coffee that I like. Frozen coffee drinks I can do from time to time, I treat it as an indulgence.

    After dinner tonight we just had what was called cold brew jelly.
    Cold brew coffee mixed with gelatin, then diced into cubes and topped with whipped cream, chocolate, and maple syrup. It was really good.

    I have been drinking this lately, it’s @bearthedog and James Gibson’s fault.

    Bustelo in a Bialetti Moka Pot

    Cuban style or just straight black.

    Everything else seems far too watered down for me now.

    Taken in an Expat® Knives Deneen Pottery mug.

    Due to my extensive time in El Caribe, I developed a strong addiction to this style of coffee, and I make it just like this:

    I used to drink Cafe Bustelo, then I was introduced to La Carretta from Miami -- just recently I discovered Cafe El Morro at Dollar Tree of all places -- it's "Puerto Rican espresso" and is actually pretty decent.
    at $1 for a 6 oz brick, it's a better price than the other 2, and still makes a good cuban coffee.

    I've had La Carreta before. I used to eat at their places in Miami.

    Never had El Morro from PR, but I've been to El Morro in PR about a thousand times :)

    It has to be fresh ground and made in a French Press (or a stovetop maker like the Bialetti will do) and definitely NO milk or sugar, and absolutely no flavoured coffee of any kind!!

    Over the years, the coffees that have really stood out for me were the maracaibos variety from Venezuela, and the beans from the Villa Rica region in Peru (Peru also has some of my least favourite coffee, anything from the Jaen region I can’t stomach).

    I spent a couple months working in the south of Cuba, and have to say I wasn’t a fan of the Cuban coffee I had there, only because it came “pre sweetened” and I can’t stand sugar in my coffee. Maybe it’s a regional thing, but where I was staying all the coffee beans available in the market were soaked in a sugar-water brine prior to and during roasting and were way too sweet. I remember buying a big bag of green coffee beans and making arrangement to have it custom roasted without sugar. The coffee grown there was quite good when prepared without sugar.

    Just curious, does the packaged Cuban coffee you all buy come pre-sweetened?

    nope - just pitch-black coffee flour, ready for brewing.

    No, the ones I buy are not pre-sweetened. You have to make it 50% sugar, 50% coffee yourself :)
