Yesterday I shared with you about my life as a child growing up in a Colombian home. The one thing I didn’t mention was that I grew up in Miami. If you are familiar with Miami, you know that there are an array of cultures there and one very predominant one is the cuban culture.
As a child growing up in Miami, not only did I embrace my own culture but I learned a lot about the cuban cuisine. It became a staple food in our home. We enjoyed lechon, arroz con frijoles negros, maduros, to name a few.
One thing that I learned to enjoy as a teenager was Cuban Coffee. That was something you always had after each meal and in the morning with some fresh cuban bread from the panaderia. When I left home, I made sure I took a “cafetera” with me so I could make my own cuban coffee and wherever I lived my friends learned to enjoy Cuban Coffee. I had friends in Alabama hooked on it. 🙂
When I got married, I had not introduced my husband to Cuban Coffee. The first time my mom came over, she brought over her “cafetera” and Cuban Coffee and made some for my husband. That was the beginning of my husband’s addiction. He immediately fell in love with Cuban Coffee and had my mom teach him how to make it. He even learned how to make the foam.
Next thing you know my husband was looking for Cuban Coffee in Arizona and when he couldn’t find it her ordered a case online. Yes, now we had a case of Cuban Coffee in our house and the addiction began and continues in our home. Every morning we make Cuban Coffee and when we have friends over they ask for it. We even order some extra “cafeteras” Cuban Coffee Makers and give them as gifts with Cuban Coffee during the holidays to our now addicted friends.
So my husband got me addicted to pumpkin and my mother got him addicted to Cuban Coffee and so today we are going to try to make a Pumpkin Butter Latte. Yes, we are going to use the Pumpkin Butter I made and his Cuban Coffee and we are going to make a Pumpkin Butter Latte.
We are coffee lovers and tea lovers in this house. Since we love to gift these during the holidays, I thought it would be perfect to include a handmade metal embossed Stainless Steel Gift Coffee Mug.
So, for this project I embraced both cultures and created this homemade gift of Stainless Steel Coffee Mug that I decorated using Jumbo Leaves Stamp Set. Leaf Background Stamp Set, and the Leaf Die Cut Set . Stay tuned as I share the Pumpkin Latte Recipe and the Pumpkin Butter Recipe with you on Sunday, September 21st with you. Make sure to come back.
