Cafecito (Cuban Coffee)
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup Café Bustelo® Ground Espresso Coffee
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
- Step 1
FILL stove-top or electric moka pot according to manufacturer's instructions using water and coffee. Reassemble moka pot. Begin to brew over medium heat.
- Step 2
PLACE sugar in 2-cup liquid measuring cup or metal pitcher. As soon as espresso begins to brew, pour about 1/2 tablespoon espresso over the sugar. Return moka pot to the heat to finish brewing. (Remove from heat as soon as brewing is complete.)
- Step 3
BEAT sugar and espresso with small spoon until mixture turns into a creamy, pale beige paste and most of the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes.

POUR brewed espresso gently over the creamed sugar. Stir gently. A thin layer of sugar foam should float on top. Pour into espresso cups. Serve immediately.
