Cafe Con Leche is the name of a set of programs for Windows and Linux. These two programs work together to make billing, time management and customer relationship management for cyber cafes (Internet cafes) a less technical task. Although Cafe Con Leche has not been developed since 2006, the project lives in a new project called Mkahawa. Install Mkahawa in Ubuntu to get the features of Cafe Con Leche on your computer.
