"This is a sweet coffee drink, made with cajeta, a rich caramel sauce that is made from either goat or cow milk. It's similar to dulce de leche, but it has a more liquid consistency. You can find it in well-stocked supermarkets or in Mexican grocery stores. Cajeta is jst as versatile as caramel sauce, and it's delicious as a spread on cookies or drizzled over ice cream. -NOTE- I have a huge sweet tooth, you can adjust the sugar amount to your taste."

Yum, I love sweet coffees and this lovely treat does not disappoint. Made as written but I used salted butter caramel in the coffee and butterscotch on top of the whipped cream. I loved the subtle flavor of the cinnamon mixing with the caramel. So very good. I couldn't find dulce de leche around here. Thank you for sharing this lovely coffee, that I will enjoy often. Made for Seaside Brasserie - 2020.
