Puerto Rico Coffee Drink Recipes and Preparation

Last month, for our Isla Bonita Coffee opening at Halcyon Coffeehouse, I contacted the baristas at some of the most original Puerto Rico Spanish coffee shops or panaderias, Kasalta and Panaderia Espana.  I got their insights on Puerto Rico coffee drink preparation.  Here’s a summary:
