If you have been around a while you have come to know (and hopefully love) our Monday K-cup coffee recipes. I love fun, easy to make coffee drinks! They are a simple indulgence that can usually be made with ingredients already in your kitchen. There will be no running to the local coffee shop around here, no sir, we have Keurig’s in our kitchen that make these recipes easy peasy.
This week specialty Kcup recipe is …Cafe con Miel.
This is a new one to me. I had never heard of Cafe con Miel until now. Cafe con Miel is a Spanish drink and translates to coffee with honey. I am HUGE honey fan, I buy it in bulk and use it on and in everything as a sugar substitute. From brownies to oatmeal and cottage cheese to strawberries, I put it on everything (I think I have a honey addiction!). So, when I came across this recipe it was right up my alley.
The simplicity of this Kcup recipe also appealed to me. There really isnt much to it and the results are amazing!
You can use any Kcup your little heart desires but, I always choose a dark roast or extra bold coffee in any of my recipes. I just think you need to go very strong with your Kcup coffee choice so that it can stand up to the milk and other ingredients in the recipe without getting watered (or milked?) down.
Let’s get to the recipe…
