Cuban Coffee

Espresso made from dark-roasted beans (and to be historically correct, roasted chickpeas as well), Cuban coffee tempers its bitterness with a cap of sugar that has been whipped together with coffee to create something that looks like cream. The sugar balances the coffee’s inherent bitterness, making it a truly bitter-sweet experience. Especially in Florida, where it is popular in Latin communities, Cuban coffee customarily is served in tiny demitasse cups, which are said to reflect just how precious and scarce coffee has become for citizens of Communist Cuba.
