Un buchito ("little sip") de cafe´, 1954

Cuban coffee traditionally is served with milk (con leche) but if you prefer to have coffee without milk, you can order a half a cup of straight espresso, known also as "un buchito, bouchie or buchi". Buchito translates into English as "little sip". Havana Bay Company ® and its affiliates offer information and other services to people who enjoy Cuban cuisine and pre-Castro collectibles.
