Café Bombón

Café Bombon was made popular in Valencia, Spain, and spread gradually to the rest of the country. A café bombón, however uses espresso served with sweetened condensed milk in a 1:1 ratio
For café bombón, the condensed milk is added to the espresso. For visual effect, a glass is used, and the condensed milk is added slowly to sink underneath the coffee and create two separate bands of contrasting colour – though these layers are customarily stirred together before consumption.
