Café Bombón – strong black expresso coffee with a dash of “Leche Condensada” (condensed milk) is one of my favourite coffees mid morning. So pretty when you first prepare it, seems such a shame when you are forced to stir prior to drinking! The first time I saw it I was intrigued – in a small bar in the center of Huescar.
The thing about this coffee is it is really very sweet. I think the Spanish, to a certain extent, have a much sweeter touth than the British – especially when it comes to sweets. For me, Café Bombón is on the edge of my sweet tolerance but I adore its creamy sweetness with just an edge of bitterness from the very strong black coffee. There was a lady once in Alicante who, when handed her coffee, proceeded to add two further sugars – even now my teeth go numb with just the memory!
