In Mexico we love coffee time, we call it la hora del cafecito. This special moment we share alone to take time during the day to relax, while reading a celebrity gossip magazine. Or we drink it with friends to chat about life and just have a good time.

Coffee is a serious thing for Latinos. For example, in Brazil coffee is called cafezinho and it is served in a small cup because it is strong. Brazilians start their day with a shot of this very strong coffee. Me being a coffee lover when I was used to visit South America for work I embraced that tradition too and enjoyed this coffee not only in the morning but in the afternoon too.

In Cuba, coffee is an essential thing. It is part of their culture and way of living. My husband is Cuban and I have learned that in order to do anything cafecito comes first. Cuban coffee is somewhat as strong as Brazilian coffee but it is served differently.

A good café cubano is strong but sweet and comes in a small cup with froth called espumita. Which is made with the first drops of the hot coffee and a good amount of sugar. Then quickly whipped to result in a caramel color froth that will be combined with the hot strong coffee and served immediately.

Few weeks ago I visited St Louis and met with a friend that has the same passion for coffee as I do. We chatted over espresso con panna. An Italian style espresso served in small cup and finished with a dash of milk froth. Cubans like it same way but they call it cortadito and has sugar.

Now that you know the coffee types and the rituals I love,  I am sure you are ready to enjoy this creamy and refreshing Mexican Milk Coffee Frappe or Café con Leche Frappé.

This looks INCREDIBLE and the perfect summer treat! I’ve pinned this to make this weekend.

I have Nescafe dark roast instant coffee powder in my hand. I will give this one a try. Looks delicious and frothy. Also I haven’t tried coffee with honey in it. This great on a hot summer day.

Whitney

I’m not a coffee drinker but I do like a nice ice cold frappe once in a while! Yours sounds super easy to make myself, now I just need to get my hands on some good Mexican coffee! Thanks for the recipe!

Amy

This looks so easy and refreshing! Cinnamon & honey together are just such a perfect match! And that frothy yumminess is so tempting!

Joanna

Coffee is my go-to in the afternoons. Since giving up white sugar, honey is now my sweetner of choice. I will have to give this a try, because I have everything needed!

I don’t really drink coffee, but l love the sound of it. It’s like pure heaven for coffee lovers, especially in summer time. I must make it for my husband, he’d love it.

I love instant coffee as they are just so much more easier to make and I’m loving this Mexican Milk Coffee Frappe recipe. I’v never had Mexican coffee but you made it look so easy that I’m going to try as soon as I get some nice strong Mexican instant coffee.

I sure could use that right now! It sounds delicious and I’m dragging. I need a boost and that definitely would give it to me. I’ll be sure to get some STRONG instant coffee and keep it on hand just in case!
