Learn How to Make a Cafe Bombon at Home!

Have you ever heard of a cafe bombon before? While this drink might be little-known outside of the country of Spain, its home, this sweet coffee treat is easy to make at home and is a delicious alternative to more common choices.

In fact, cafe bombon only contains two main ingredients! There’s no need to worry about fancy additions, expensive syrups, or hard-to-find ingredients, making it a perfect choice to make at home. Here’s how to do so!


  • 2 ounces condensed milk
  • 4 ounces espresso or strong coffee
  • Cocoa powder (optional)
  • Ground cinnamon (option)


Start off by making a double shot of espresso, or simply by making approximately four ounces of strong coffee. Once it has been made, set it off to the side.

Take a medium-sized glass and add the two ounces of condensed milk to the bottom.

After this, go ahead and pour in the espresso or coffee. This will form two separate layers, with the coffee on top and the condensed milk on the bottom.

Finally, you can sprinkle ground cinnamon and/or cocoa powder on top of the drink in order to give it a little bit of extra flavor. Stir with a spoon to mix, or enjoy the two parts separately. Enjoy!
