Skip the Line: Cafe de Olla

April 28, 2019

Kick off Cinco de Mayo with a traditional Cafe de Olla coffee recipe!

Looking for a sweet, spiced addition to your morning arsenal? Look no further! Café de Olla is one of our favorite ways to mix up our coffee brewing routine. The traditional preparation of Café de Olla involves the use of an “Olla”, a Mexican clay pot with a glazed interior used for various forms of cooking. However, this delicious coffee drink can be prepared by using a large saucepan found in most kitchens.

Ingredients

3 1/4 cups of distilled water
4 ounces brown sugar or piloncillo 
3-4 whole cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup coarse ground coffee, we recommend our Single Origin Mexican Chiapas
A Clay Olla (or saucepan)

Directions

1) Bring the water in olla or sauce pan to a boil

2). Add cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, and orange peel

3). Stir the mixture until the brown sugar is completely dissolved

4).Cover and let the mixture sit for five minutes, then strain the mixture into a French press with coffee grounds

5). Allow it to steep for four minutes

6). Pour yourself a delicious cup and garnish with a whole cinnamon stick

As always, join your furry best friend on the couch, or your friends around the kitchen table and enjoy!
