illy El Jefe Coffee Recipe

The official sponsor of the Tribeca Film Festival, illy, called upon Master Barista Giorgio Milos in honor of the film, Chef, starring Jon Favreau and an A-List group of co-stars. This original coffee drink combines the classic Cafe Cubano and its Robusta beans with sugar during brewing to balance the bitter, astringent flavors with a wingman of ultra-high-temperature milk.

Milos calls this coffee drink El Jefe. Using 100 percent Arabica beans and fresh organic milk, it’s a coffee drink you’ll savor.
