Café con leche (Spanish: "coffee with milk") is a Spanish coffee beverage. More similar to the Italian caffe latte than to the French café au lait, café con leche is a coffee beverage consisting of strong or bold coffee (usually espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio. Sugar or sweetener is added according to taste.
The beverage is extremely common in Spain, in many Latin American countries, the Philippines and communities around the world. In the Cuban bastions of Tampa and Miami (Florida, US), for example, café con leche is a local breakfast staple.
