The Café Bombon is a sweet and thick espresso drink because the condensed milk contains no water and often has added sugar, as such, it is not recommended to add flavored syrups to this recipe.
Instead, aim for a naturally sweet coffee such as a Brazilian or Colombian, or possible a quality Guatemalan coffee.
Although traditionally this coffee is made with full-fat condensed milk, there are low-fat and fat-free options (But we can’t guarantee it will taste just a delicious!).
