I think we can all agree that cafecito ☕️ rules many of our lives. I mean, it’s no surprise that Hispanics drink significantly more coffee than other ethnic groups 😜 according to studies. 

Latin America already produces most of the world’s coffee 🌎 so we’ve had access to the best beans since birth 🍼

Don’t like your coffee black? Some of us need 🥛 leche, azúcar or chocolate 🍫 to down this otherwise bitter beverage. 

A mix of espresso and lots of sugar makes Cuban coffee dangerous 😳 And adding condensed milk to a cortadito makes it dangerous for the waistline, but so delicious 😋

With a splash of canela to top it off, Mexican coffee can also be enjoyed with an extra kick of coffee liquor or even tequila 🥃 taking things to a whole other level 🚀

So who wins in a cafe battle royale? 

Isn’t it obvious? It’s our cultura! Our gringo friends don’t have a sip of coffee until they’re 18 😝  

It’s what unites us around the dining table and gives us a chance to grow bonds with our loved ones. So add whatever you’d like to your coffee, and share it with un amigo
