I'm excited about this recipe, yes, an iced coffee recipe. Here is the story, I used to work in a Spanish specialty store where they sold a coffee called Cafe Bombon. It's essentially a shot of a strong espresso or coffee sweetened with condensed milk. I’m not sure which area of Spain it’s from but this coffee is such a treat, you must order it if you come across it.
Ever since I discovered Cafe Bombon, my iced coffee have never been the same. I use strong espresso and while it’s still hot, I add the condensed milk which melts right in, I then add cardamom seeds for an extra layer of flavor, once it’s cool, whole milk is added. It’s really creamy and the cardamom perfumes the coffee beautifully, It is by far my favorite iced coffee.
6 to 8 servings
4 cups of very strong coffee, hot
¼ cup condensed milk (more or less, depending how sweet you like it)
6 cardamom pots, optional
2 cups whole milk
In a serving pitcher, add the hot coffee and mix in the condensed milk. Add the cardamom seeds and let the coffee cool. Once cooled, remove the cardamom seeds and add the whole milk. Place it in the refrigerator until really cold. Serve over ice.
