Coffee is Life! How to Make Café Bombón

Coffee is life, at least for me!

So, I asked my beautiful cousin, Magda, about recipes for Spanish coffee.  After all, she married into a Spanish family, so I figured – who will know better?!  And within minutes, I had SO many coffee ideas that I will seriously be trying a different coffee every week;)  And not just Spanish!  Thank you Magda!

Today, I am making Café Bombón.

I did a bit of research before making this pretty drink and it turns out Café Bombón started its roots in Valencia, Spain, and was then carried throughout the entire country.

Bombón derives its name from the Spanish term that means “confection.”  So, basically – sweet coffee.  Works for me!



  • 1 part sweet condensed milk
  • 1 part espresso

The ratio of milk to espresso should really depend on your preference.  For a stronger, less sweet coffee, use 1 part milk, 2 part espresso


  • Pour espresso into a glass
  • Carefully pour condensed milk to sink underneath the coffee
  • Serve in a glass to show the two layers
  • Stir before drinking

Apparently, some Spanish establishments simply serve an espresso with a sachet of condensed milk for patrons to make themselves.  Cool!


Now imagine serving this beauty next time you are entertaining!  You’re sure to impress!

Happy Sunday!
