Spiced Sweet Mexican Coffee recipe from Pati's Mexican Table Season 1, Episode 11 “Middle Eastern Influences”
- 6 cups water
- 6 tbsp coarsely ground dark roasted coffee
- 4 oz piloncillo, can substitute for brown sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
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.
