To Prepare

Bring the water to a rolling boil in a pot. Reduce the heat to low and add the coffee, piloncillo and cinnamon stick. Simmer partially covered for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, then turn off the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes.

Strain through a fine sieve or cheesecloth and serve. Alternatively, remove the cinnamon stick and pour the drink into a French press; press down on the plunger and serve.

I enjoy your show, and you make cooking Mexican very easy. Thank you

Thank YOU for watching, Teresa!

I love the show, it’s unique and fun, can the coffe be made in a French press coffee pot?

Thanks, Wanda! Yes it can, absolutely. Once it has simmered, remove the cinnamon stick, pour onto coffee press, and press on…

We love your show and recipes.

Thank you for tuning in!

Hi Pati, do you put the coffee beans in the press? I don’t have one, but will get one to try this. So you leave the beans kind of chunky? Grind them in a spice blender? Thank you.

Hola Patty, Yes, grind the beans in spice grinder.

Hey Patti! We adore using your wonderful recipes here at our ministry ranch! My husband loves to cook mexican and you have inspired some new ideas! We are trying your french toast for Easter! Can’t wait!!! God’s blessings to you and your family.
