Authentic Mexican Coffee Recipe

Mexican Coffee

Prep Time
5 minutes

Cook Time
23 minutes

Serves
4-8 depending on cup size

This particular coffee recipe comes from women in Mexico who made it during the revolution to strengthen and support the soldiers! It reminds me of the Lindt Intense Orange Dark Chocolate bars.

It's definitely more of a desert coffee with all the sugar and sweet things being added, but it's a fun way to mix things up.

Ingredients

Mexican Coffee Ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoons Coffee Beans, Coarsely Ground (We used Latin American beans)
  • 4 Cups Cold, Filtered Water
  • 4 Cinnamon Sticks, Mexican Preferred (We used these)
  • 3 1/2 Ounces Piloncillo (Or unrefined dark brown sugar)
  • Orange Rind
  • 3 Ounces Mexican Chocolate (Or semisweet chocolate)
  • 1 Teaspoon Mexican Vanilla Extract (Or regular)
  • 1 Splash Heavy Whipping Cream (Optional)

Directions

Step 1

Coarsely grind the coffee beans and place in a large French Press or Pour-Over. Moisten the grounds in the filter basket with hot water, letting sit about 30 seconds. Once moist, pour the rest of the hot water in a circular motion and let brew for 3 minutes.

Step 2

In a large saucepan, add in the cinnamon sticks, orange peel, chocolate, and piloncillo.

Step 3

Pour in the brewed coffee and gently heat, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes. The sugar and chocolate should be completely melted.

Step 4

Remove the pan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Step 5

Remove the cinnamon sticks and orange peel and pour the hot coffee into cups. Add whipped cream, if desired. Finally, add tequila or Kahlua coffee liqueur if you'd prefer a Mexican Coffee Cocktail.
