Back Home In Miami

Growing up in Miami, café con leche is an integral part of life. No matter what you do in Miami, Cuban coffee can be found. Café is to Miami is what apple ie is to the rest of America.

In fact, café Cubano, in all its forms – cortadito, café con leche or an espresso – is the center of the universe of Cuban-American culture (and therefore Miami society). You’ll be hard-pressed find a politician that hasn’t made a stop at one of Miami’s famous cafeterias (aka Versailles)… So its normal that when I get home I only have one thing in mind, take me to a cafeteria and get me a café con leche and tostada (hot cuban bread), so I can find my version of homegrown heaven.
