The purple corn in the soothing Bolivian drink is super comforting when that horrible winter comes a knocking. It’s like something sent from heaven.

If you like a strong jolt of caffeine while warming up your frozen throat, a cafecito Cubano will hit the spot.


Pretty sure no one needs convincing to down a couple bowls of this amazing stuff on a cold day. Am I right?

Because Cubans are known for more than their coffee. Surprise, surprise. ?

Chocolate Abuelita

Of course you can always just eat the chocolate (yum!), but mixing it into a warm, non-caffeinated drink first thing on a cold morning sounds so nice, yeah?

This soup is great because you can change the shrimp for chicken and it will still be just as amazing.


You can always make yourself a pot of this corn flour-based nectar of the gawds!


Or you can enjoy this cousin of atole with the added benefit of chocolate, just know it’s almost a sin to have without a bolillo to dip.

Café de Olla

Someone's Spider-Man Comic Book Screwup Pissed Off Latinos


Someone’s Spider-Man Comic Book Screwup Pissed Off Latinos


Comic book writers Jose Molina and Nick Lowe were riding high when the latest issue of the relaunched comic The Amazing Spider-Man hit stores. The issue follows Spider-Man as he fights evil in Cuba. But, in their rush to print the issue, they made one critical mistake – within the FIRST panel.

Jose Molina, the Puerto Rican writer of the newest The Amazing Spider-Man comic, was so excited for its release.

And he should be, because Spider-Man goes to Cuba, which is a big deal.

But check out the first few panels of Spider-Man crawling around Cuba. Notice anything off?

Remember, Spider-Man is supposed to be in Cuba…

That’s right. The flag proudly waving in the Cuban winds is actually Puerto Rico’s flag.

#embarrassing ?

The gaffe prompted Molina to publicly apologize.

“I HAVE TO APOLOGIZE fro the mistake that appeared in issue 1.2 of #AmazingSpiderMan, which I wrote and which hit stores today,” Molina tweeted. “As a Puerto Rican born-and-raised, I can’t tell you how embarrassed I am by this mix-up. It was an honest mistake; I can’t explain how it happened.”

The editor of the comic, Nick Lowe, immediately offered to correct the issue.

Even to the point of redoing the comic and re-releasing it with the correct flag.

And they made good on their promise giving Cuban Spider-Man fans the Cuban flag they expected.

Nice job, guys.
