Basic ingredients

This Hispanic coffee in an espresso style can be made simple or rich in creaminess. Choose your way, but your basic elements remain the same. These are:

  • Bustelo coffee: Make sure you have a strong and brewed coffee. A half-cup will better work.
  • Water: Pour one cup if you are the only one having it. You better follow the water level of the espresso machine.
  • Milk: To make your dark roasted café style Bustelo, you would need a one-fourth cup of hot and frothed milk. It will give you a less bitter but bold taste.
  • Sugar: Add sugar in an amount that suits your preference. But I like it bold, so I toss a little gulp of sugar.

Optional mix-ins

Want to give your coffee a magical touch-up? Then go creative and toss the following additional ingredients in your brew coffee:

  • Caramel sauce: One or two tbsp is enough to make it as a caramel mocha.
  • Chocolate syrup: To make it more chocolaty in taste, add 1-2 tbsp.
  • Cinnamon: It brings an additional roasted flavor. Put a little.
  • Whipping cream: I prefer using chilled and heavy cream of about ¾ cup.

Steps to make bold Bustelo coffee

  • Pour water in the water reservoir of your espresso maker at the back. I would recommend adding six ounces of slightly cold water for each tablespoon of coffee.
  • Pour your coffee into the portafilter container of the coffee maker. If your machine doesn’t have any filter set up, I would say place a filter on its grinding basket.
  • Lock the grinding basket and position your mug below it. Turn it on and begin to brew! It may take about 10-15 minutes, but time somewhat depends on the coffee maker you choose.
  • Your dark coffee is ready. Don’t forget to toss a little sugar.
  • Stir it well with hot milk and serve.

Now, if you want, you can have it this way. Want to add some mix-ins? It’s time to bring a creative touch.

  • Pour some caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, and mix.
  • Mix the Choco whipped cream and put it in the oven to make an even golden color foamy crema.
  • Top it with some cinnamon.

Serve the bold coffee set with a recreation!

Bonus tips to prepare a perfect cup of roasted Bustelo 

I know making a cup of coffee with an exact flavor you desire is not a breeze. But my tips can surely make that happen:

  • Make sure to check how fine is your grounded coffee.
  • I suggest brewing it well. If not brewed properly, you will find an unwanted and extremely bitter taste.
  • If your cuppa lacks a golden or brown crema, your coffee may not taste as bold as a standard Bustelo. So, check this criterion as well.
  • I would ask you to add milk with a smooth texture. Make sure it is hot and mixes well, leaving no coffee lumps.

Well, now you know the exact way to prepare a café style Bustelo right at your home. So, what are you waiting for at this moment? Bring out your espresso maker and let it make you this Latin coffee.
