Mexican Coffee – A Beautiful Mess


This is my take on Starbucks’ copycat version of Mexican coffee. If you’ve never had it before, it’s a delicious, slightly spicy flavored coffee drink covered in chocolate and topped with whipped cream. Although it’s not quite as creamy and sweet as mocha, it’s not that far-fetched.

Traditional Mexican coffee, or Café de Olla, is made with coffee, cinnamon, and raw dark sugar (look for a Great recipe here). You can also prepare a Mexican coffee cocktail that includes coffee liqueur and tequila. But this version is alcohol-free and more on the chocolate side. This Mexican coffee recipe is great for an afternoon treat or for a sweeter morning coffee drink.

ingredients

  • coffee
  • Brown sugar
  • cacao
  • cinnamon
  • cayenne
  • Milk
  • Whipped cream – optional

directione

First brew 6 ounces of hot coffee. You can do this using any coffee brewing method you prefer. Learn how to make Chemex, French press, or Aeropress coffee here.

Mix together the brown sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and milk. The goal is to dissolve the sugar and completely incorporate the other ingredients so that no lumps remain. I think adding all the ingredients to a jar with a lid and shaking well works great, or you can use a small whisk or milk frother wand.

Pour the spiced milk into the cup. Then we pour hot coffee. Top with whipped cream if using.
