Just out of curiosity, JuanR and CMIN, how much sugar are you talking about?

Posted July 9, 2013 link

Depends on the cup size of the Moka and I've seen places use not that much sugar and others put a boat load in. And I've also seen places grind whole Bustelo/Pilon beans and the 1st couple drips from the espresso machine into the sugar and then quickly put a cup underneath for rest of the shot and then mix for a single for one person. I personally like it with brown sugar which melts easier and has a different taste then flat out sweetness like white.

not the best vid but just as an example:

I do one teaspoon of sugar per 3oz cup you are making.  Put the sugar at the bottom of a pitcher.  As soon as the coffee starts seeping out (it has to be the very first highly concentrated drops), take a little less than a teaspoon full of liquid for each cup you are making and whip it up with the sugar in the pitcher.  When the moka pot is done brewing, pour the rest of the liquid over the paste that you made and stir it up.  It will froth up, with a layer of "crema" on the top.  Pour into your shot glasses and serve.  Each glass/cup will have a little layer of the fake "crema".

The flavor is really unique.  Again, this is NOT espresso; it's something different, and really wonderful in its own way.

Juan, do you think I could make this with my Brikka?  The issue is that the Brikka blasts out all of the brew much more rapidly than your typical moka pot.  I have some bustela coffee and wouldn't mind using it for this.

Thanks for the response guys,

I have some friends that have spent some time in the Dominican Republic and they make some coffee that I believe to be very similar.

I am always game to try another way of making coffee so I shall give it a whirl!

I guess it would work, as long as you used the first drops.  I've never used a Brikka, just the Express.  I think the key is that the liquid you use to whip up the sugar just needs to be the really heavily concentrated and thick stuff that comes out first.  So it should work the same, in theory.

I hope you enjoy it.  It's not for everyone, but I love it.

The problem I think I will encounter with the Brikka is that I cannot use just the beginning liquid.  The Brikka must stay on the burner with no movement to it until it is done.  Here is a video of it in operation:

I will try making the bustelo with it tomorrow.  Howevever it will have to be with a totally completed brew. I will use just a bit of it at first with the sugar, then mix in the rest as you suggest.

Juan, thanks for the info.  I did not know that about making cafe cubano with Bustelo or Pilon only...my bad.  I find it funny that Bustelo, at least the family Bustelo, is in Mexico.  They own a chain of resorts in Cancun/Riviera Maya (and a few other places I think as well).
