Cuba Holiday Treats - Four Delicious Cuba Cold Coffee Recipes
By Helen Phillips
Traveling to Cuba through out these years, I have learned lots of things about Cuban people, Cuban culture and Cuban traditions. Though Cuban coffee is actually not originally from Cuba, for some reason when you think about Cuba, Cuban rum, Cuban cigars and Cuban coffee is the first that comes to your mind. A cup of strong Cuban Coffee early in the morning, after the main meals or late in the afternoon is a deep-rooted tradition in Cuba and it is the first thing Cubans will offer you when you come to visit. Even tourist take back home a pack of Cuban coffee as a souvenir when they travel to Cuba on vacations. There are many different ways to prepare coffee. You can Cuban eau-de-vie, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger and much more, it all depends on what you like, or what you feel like having. I offer you here 4 delicious Cuba cold coffee recipes I learned from Yansel, the waiter at the Coffee House in Topes de Collantes. Yansel is a young guy who knows a lot about coffee. I told him he is a coffee encyclopedia and I was not joking. I tried these recipes myself and they are really unique, ideal for a hot summer day in Cuba.

It will be a nice way to surprise your friends with a Cuba coffee treat. I'm sure your friends would be very grateful.
