Measuring System



The coffee measuring system is very much unique in Malaga. It has now become part of the Malaga’s heritage. As we have described above that this system was invented by Don Jose Prado. That man invented this system to properly understand what actually the customer is asking for.


During that time, “A finger of coffee” was the traditional way to order the coffee. In this way, people were either end up serving too little or too much coffee with this finger measurement. This thing was usually leading to the wastage of coffee that was not bearable, especially at the time civil war when coffee was difficult to hold up and also too much expensive.


That’s why Don Jose Prado invented this system by which he can reduce the wastage of coffee and also offer the perfect taste to the customer according to his need.
Some of the coffee measurings of this system are described below:


Nube: This is the measuring in which you will get a glass of milk with only a dash of coffee in it
Sombra: In Sombra, there is only a little bit more coffee than Nube and the rest of the glass is full of milk
Corto: There is a little bit less coffee than a half glass and a little bit more than a half is milk
Mitad: There are half coffee and half milk in a glass
Largo: This is the measuring in which you will get a glass of coffee with only a dash of milk in it
Solo: It is a pure glass of coffee in which you will get no milk but only coffee
