Keurig / K cup Cafe con Leche

Year of past OR future Camino
Camino Frances (2015, 2017, 2019) and plans for 2021 (Sept, Oct)
One of our favorite daily rituals on the camino is having café con leche with our breakfast and also at one of our rest breaks walking through a town. When my wife and I returned home in late October, I was thinking about creative Xmas presents I could buy for my wife. I pondered whether there are Keurig K cups with cafe con leche flavor. I signed onto Amazon.com and was pleased to find Cafe con Leche offered by "Cafe Bustelo". While it does not taste exactly like the CCL we had in Spain, it is very tasty and we are enjoying it. And this was certainly a surprise for my wife ! Bob

For those trying to replicate the cafe con leche experience and who don't have a Keurig machine, apparently the use of uht milk rather than the more generally available fresh milk, makes all the difference.

It helps to relive the experience if you first walk 3km in an early morning daze, preferably uphill.

Your last comment reminded me of our old friend Tamtamplin’s hilarious post. Posting it again so the new folks can read it and the old timers can laugh at it again.

Hoping Tam is doing well.

A simple stove top espresso maker will do nicely. And warm the milk if you want to make it more authentic. Coffee pods are expensive and terrible for the environment, but to each their own.

to add to the Tamtamplin’s Camino Training Programme:

Ask your a family member to randomly switch on the vacuum cleaner next to where you're sleeping, then try to switch it off, because you forgot your earplugs.

Buen Camino

We continue to enjoy Cafe con Leche from our Keurig coffee maker. My wife found another tasty morning hot drink from the same company (Cafe Bustelo): Cafe con Chocolate. Muy bueno ! Bob

Worth posting every so often. 😆😆😃🤪 We humans are interesting. I, for example, love to travel and long to walk on a Camino. I am always wishing we could stay a little longer when it ends. But when I get home, I am happy to see family, play with our pup, sleep later in the morning-and in my own bed, have a private bathroom, use that automatic icemaker, control the heat and air-con, shop in local supermarkets and buy and make green vegetables like Spinach, Escarole, and Broccoli to name a just a few pluses! Then a few weeks later I start planning my next one.....hmmm.

Am I the only one who gets high just being at the airport?
