Barraqiuto is a four-colour coffee, known all over Spain, but mainly spread in the Canary Islands, especially in Tenerife and La Palma. Tenerife is called the capital of Barraquito coffee. It contains coffee, condensed milk and liqueur, so it refreshes, encourages and stimulates us. Being on Tenerife and not to try Barraquito is a sin and a missed chance.
History of Barraquito coffee
The legend tells the story of the Imperial Bar in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which was visited by a mysterious guest in the middle of the 20th century (His nickname was Barraco), and he always ordered a coffee tailored to his taste. The bartenders adopted the recipe and prepared it for other curious guests. So, it got the name after the nickname of the secret unknown. Maybe like that: Please, bring me coffee of the unknown stranger – Barraquito.
