Funnily enough what we might call Spanish coffee is called cappuccino in Spain and what we would call a cappuccino is called café con leche.

Ordering coffee in Spain

  • Café solo which the Spanish equivalent of espresso. It is usually a very small cup
  • Café con leche is espresso in a big cup and hot whipped milk. One of the most popular ways to drink coffee in Spain  
  • Cortado  or cafe manchado is a single espresso in a small cup with about a tablespoon of whipped milk on top
  • Leche manchada is coffee flavored milk. More than half is milk with a bit of coffee. You can find this type of coffee in the South of Spain
  • Café bonbon is a Spanish specialty. Is starts with a layer of sweet condensed milk, then espresso and topped with whipped milk. It is also served without the hot whipped milk
  • Leche y leche this means milk and milk is actually no coffee drink. It is similar to café bonbon but does’t contain any coffee. It is a mix of sweet condensed milk and hot whipped milk. The condensed milk to hot milk ratio is 1:1
  • Café con hielo is espresso and a glas of ice cubes. When you receive the café solo you pour it on top of the ice and drink it straight away. It is usually popular in the summer
  • Café bonbon con hielo is the same as a café bonbon but includes ice cubes to cool down. Another popular summer drink
  • Café desafinado, if you do not want to drink caffeine just order this cafe desafinado which  means decaffeinated coffee

As you can see no coffee is made with whipped cream other than when you order a cappuccino in Spain.

However the funny thing is that in countries outside of Spain, Spanish coffee is really popular and made like this.

How to make Spanish coffee

This is such an easy recipe. Start with whipping up the cream with 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar. Whip the cream just firm. Do not over whip or you will get a buttery consistency.

Warm the glass you can do this by pouring some hot water in the glass and swirl it round. Remove the water and dry the glass.

Then pour the Licor 43 in the glass and make a hot café solo to pour over the top. The Licor 43 and coffee will mix.

Take a spoon and gently pour the whipped cream on top of the coffee. Decorate with some cocoa or cinnamon.
