Brewing Puerto Rican Coffee
An old friend of mine had a grandmother who used to send us packed cubes
of ground coffee from Puerto Rico
My friend would use these to make coffee for us on Sunday mornings
This is truly one of the most delightful ways to experience coffee
Measure one cup of water for each cup of coffee into a saucepan
Turn on the heat and bring the water to a simmer
Use one full, heaping tablespoon of ground coffee for every cup
When the water is simmering but not boiling, add the coffee to the water
Stir it well for about one minute, keeping it below boiling
Turn off the heat, and let it brew for one minute, stirring once or twice
If drinkingcoffee black, strain it directly into the coffee cups
*If using milk and sugar strain into a larger cup
Return the saucepan to the burner and turn on the flame
Add a quarter cup of milk and a teaspoon of sugar for each coffee into the saucepan
Heat the milk until it begins to foam around the edges, stirring constantly
Pour the coffee back into the saucepan, and bring it to just below simmering again
Serve and enjoy!
