well, and polishing it off I suppose with latte and hot chocolate with salty caramel at LuxBite South Yarra (as one can imagine Marie-Antoinette mini cakes and rainbow colored macaroons are only for see-food now). i hope it was an excellent new discovery for Ned as I was promised he will be taking all his clients there from now on. and as I see a surprise on his caramelized face I am asking: right, Ned?
A shot or small portion of unsweetened coffee, now usually made either using an espresso machine or a moka pot, but traditionally made using a cloth drip, usually served in cups made for the purpose (called "tazitas de pocillo"). It is widely drunk in Latin America, usually as an afternoon or after-dinner coffee. The defining feature is the size, usually half to a quarter the size of the usual ~8 US fluid ounces (240 ml) coffee cups. There are a number of small-sized drinks that usetazitas de pocillo, including sweetened (such as café cubano and café cortado), but these are usually not called a pocillo; rather, the Spanish diminutive suffix "-ito" is usually added to the name of the drink wanted in a pocillo size cup. For example, a pocillo-sized cortado is usually called a cortadito
