Hot Spanish Latte Product Description:
Hot Spanish Latte is a drink or Café con Leche as called in Spain, is Spain’s version of strong coffee with hot milk. This recipe kicks things up with a rich chocolate infusion, zesty orange, and warm cinnamon. And it’s super delicious. You couldn’t think of a better way to kickstart the week off. This awesome drink is available in 1000 ml.
In terms of Spanish origins, the flavors are a bit more reminiscent of Mexico. And some might even call this coffee drink mocha-worthy. But it still beckons to the smooth, flavorful richness of a good strong latte.
1 cup strong brewed coffee
One tablespoon of dairy-free chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon orange zest (can sub ½ teaspoon orange extract)
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅔ cup dairy-free chocolate milk beverage beverage (like Almond Breeze)
Dairy-free whipped topping, optional
What is Spanish Latte?
Basically, it’s an espresso based drink with textured normal milk and condensed milk. Slightly sweeter than a normal latte but not as sweet as a latte with flavored syrup.
The versatility of coffee knows no bounds. From cappuccinos to macchiatos, we have discovered seemingly innumerable methods to enjoy a great cup of joe. One delicious coffee recipe is called the Spanish Latte.
Adding condensed milk to coffee is not a new thing and maybe you’ve already had a Vietnamese Coffee, Cafe Bonbon or Cafe Canario, but this latte as it’s showing up right now is a slight variation on these. First of all, it’s using espresso instead of drip coffee and it’s not using just condensed milk but it balances it out with textured milk.
There are also mentions about coffees with the same recipe but different names like Havana Latte, Cuban Latte, you can probably see a pattern here.
There’s not a lot of information out there about Spanish Latte so it’s really hard to pinpoint where it first started. The place that shows up most often in my searches is Think Coffee in NYC, although there are a lot of mentions about the drink in all corners of the continental USA.
What does a Spanish Latte Taste like?
Because of the one-to-one ratio of milk to coffee, a Spanish latte has a delightfully creamy texture and slightly sweet taste. A Spanish latte is generally sweeter than a regular latte due to the addition of sugar. Many coffee-drinkers enjoy the texture of the frothed milk on top of the latte, and the high ratio of milk to coffee decreases the bitter taste more concentrated coffee exudes.
The bottom line is that if you are someone looking for that perfect morning coffee, then this is the best drink made for you.
