This is the old traditional way to make "CAFE CARRETERO", before the coffee makers were available. Makes a real traditional Cuban Coffee. 4" diameter with handle. See the link below for the cloth holder and receiving cup.
MY FAMILY IMAGRATED FROM SPAIN TO CUBA TO FLORIDA AFTER THE TURN OF THE CENTURY SO I HAVE SPANISH AND CUBAN ROOTS.
MY MOTHER WAS THE FIRST GENERATION BORN IN THE USA AND I REMEMBER HER MAKING CUBAN COFFEE THE OLD WAY EVERY MORNING WITH CUBAN TOAST WITH BUTTER IN THE OVEN.I HAD MY FIRST CUP OF CUBAN COFFEE MADE THE OLD WAY TODAY SENCE I WAS YOUNG AND IT BROUGHT BACK GOOD MEMORIES, THANK YOU

ALL MY CUBAN FAMILY, THE OLDER ONES MADE IT THIS WAY. FORGET ABOUT ALL THE FANCY MACHINES AND COFFEE POTS! DON'T LOOK ANY FURTHER THAN THIS TRIED AND TRUE METHOD OF MAKING THE BEST COFFEE YOU EVER TASTED. DO NOT BOIL THE COFFEE. LET THE WATER COME TO A BOIL SHUT IT ADD THE COFFEE, LET IT STEEP FOR 1 MINUTE, STIR, AND FILTER THROUGH THE SOCK INTO A CARAFF. I USE BUSTELLO REGULAR COFFEE- IT IS THE BEST!
FOR A 1.5 QUART POT 48 OZS. ADD 4 HEAPING TABLESPOONS OF COFFEE, TO ALMOST BOILING POINT WATER, SHUT THE FIRE ADD COFFEE AND STIR LET STEEP FOR 1 MINUTE, THE LONGER THE STRONGER. IF YOU BOIL THE COFFE IT WILL BURN AND GIVE A BITTER FLAVOR.
