Café con Leche: the meaning of the lyrics

Café con Leche is Spanish for Coffee with Milk. In urban slang, the expression alludes to interracial contact between a black and a white person. And based on what Pitbull sings, we are clearly talking about sex.

¿Quién tiene café?
Yo tengo la leche

Do you have coffe?
I’ve got the milk

Si tú sabes colar café, mami, cuélgame este paquete

If you know how to strain coffee, mommy, hang this package on me

From these two lines, it’s clear to everybody that the song is full of sexual allusions that Pitbull makes to his “mami.” That’s, therefore, the real meaning of Café con Leche lyrics: he’s white, Mami is black, they can mix well together. Give me a coffee with milk, mommy.
