Ode to Perfection

Originally uploaded by shappy85
My friend writes a Cuban recipe blog. After a hiatus, he returned to blogging and posted instructions for making Cuban Coffee at home - a "colada" specifically. I don't think it can really be called a recipe since the only ingredients are coffee and sugar, but getting the balance right is a challenge for many people. Here's a picture of the process. Seems incredibly simple but turns out any missteps along the way yield entirely different results. Still on a caffeine high from yesterday - and can't wait to try it again with maybe a lil less sugar. That's how you know I'm a gringa :)

Yes, indeed like any of the finer things in life, the devil is in the details. How awesome that you made this and don't worry, even us Cubanos will take less sweet doses from time to time.
