Cuban Spirit


I often refer to the Cubans patience, love for life and making cafe cubano from coffee and chicharos. (In the libreta, each family is entitled to Coffee...but the coffee often has "chicharos" added "chicharos are split peas grounded up to give the impression of more coffee)
So when life gives you cafe con chicharos...you make Cafe Cubano.

I had never heard of "chicharos" thanks for the explanation.

Have you tasted Rick's Cafe Cubano sans the chicharos?

Ines, I look forward to trying his Cafe Cubano...with a Starbuck's fanatic in the house I get to try many different coffees...smells good here in the morning.

I feel your pictures. I cannot know the feelings of the Cubans. I hope freedom comes quickly!
