Carajillo coffee or hot coffee drink is a coffee-based beverage, and it has as a particular ingredient or touch, liquor, whether brandy or other distilled beverage, such as rum. It usually serves in a small glass. Its history is somewhat curious.
It said that its origin comes from Cuba, where soldiers combined coffee with liquor to take courage or corajillo, and hence its name “carajillo” was born. There are quite a few stories about its origin and provenance, and this is one of them.
I wanted to bring this recipe because it is very delicious. Then, since I am on a cooking class vacation, I decided to do a barista course, a course based on drinks made with coffee, and that was where I learned to prepare it, and the truth, the combination of coffee with this liquor tastes delicious. Of course, everything to suit you, do not believe that it is a drink with high alcohol content, without or that is wholly balanced so that its flavor is delicious.
In barista classes, they teach us to taste the kinds of coffee that exist, it is a fairly broad topic, and they show us to taste a good coffee but without sugar. I did not consume coffee without having sweet, but in these classes, I have learned to do it, and I want to confess that I have enjoyed the properties of coffee more, and in this drink, sugar is not necessary, due to the appropriate balance of the drink.
So I want you to be encouraged to prepare this delicious carajillo, so rich and balanced in terms of caffeine and liquor.Español
