Leche de Vaca

Rural Costa Ricans say leche de vaca to distinguish farm-fresh milk from powdered milk. The first time I heard this I thought "why the hell would you have to say that it's cow milk?" It didn't help matters that the woman who first offered me leche de vaca had recently had a baby. Wow, awkward.

To be abundantly clear, Costa Ricans (adults) only drink milk from cows.
