Café con leche (Spanish: "coffee with milk") is a Spanish coffee beverage consisting of strong and bold coffee (usually espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio. Amount of milk can be higher in café con leche en vaso or café con leche de desayuno.  Sugar or sweetener is added according to taste. It is similar to the Italian caffè latte (latte) and the French café au lait, but is closest to the latte, as that beverage is also customarily made with espresso rather than drip coffee.
Café con leche is extremely common in Spain, Latin America and other Hispanic communities around the world. In the Cuban bastions of Tampa and Miami (Florida, US), for example, café con leche is a local breakfast staple.
