CAFE DE OLLA
Cafe de Olla con Canela y Piloncillo
Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
6 cups water
6 tbsp coarsely ground dark roasted coffee
4 oz piloncillo (can substitute for brown sugar)
1 cinnamon stick

TO PREPARE
Heat the water in a pot set over medium heat (using a clay pot is the traditional way to prepare it and it gives it a very unique flavor, but it isn’t necessary). When the water comes to a boil, lower the heat and add the coffee, piloncillo, and a cinnamon stick.

Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring until the piloncillo dissolves. Remove from the heat, let it stand covered for 5 to 10 minutes and strain before serving. Alternatively, you may remove the cinnamon and use a French press to strain the coffee as well.

¿Pati, tienes más recetas para café o té?


Pati, me encanta el cafe de olla. ¡Muchisimas gracias por la receta! I usually have my family send me packets from México, but now I can just make it myself. Thanks again!

Gracias, Mayra!



I tried this in an electric Hot Pot Kettle with a temp control. I added two petals of Annis with the cinnamon stick. it came out great, but next time I’ll leave out the Annis. I also used 1 part coffee to two parts chicory, but only to cut the caffeine.
