The first time I drank this kind of coffee was at my husband's grandfather's house. Grandpa Felix made several different flavored coffees. This Mexican style coffee is a sweet, creamy caramel-coffee drink.

Cook's Notes:

I always taste this before serving to make sure I have put enough dulce de leche. If this is sweet enough but not creamy enough, add a little milk or half-and-half.

You can substitute 8 pieces of soft caramel candy plus 1/4 cup half-and-half for dulce de leche.

This is SO good especially with homemade dulce de leche. Do not just use ice cream topping type caramel sauce; it's not creamy enough. I used the recipe from this site: Caramel In A Can (Dolce de Leche). It was fabulous--just creamy and sweet enough for me. I cut this down to 4 cups of coffee and used 4 tablespoons of dulce de leche. Read More

Nice caramel flavored coffee. I added a touch of cream and it was very good. I can see using this when I'm out of my favorite flavored creamer and am in need of a coffee fix. Read More
