Cafecito de olla

Café de Olla is a traditional coffee spiced with cinnamon, cloves, and star anise and sweetened with piloncillo (An artisanal brown sugar sweetener that is sold in the shape of a cone)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cups water

  • ½ cup coffee grounds

  • 20 g piloncillo

  • 1 whole cinnamon stick

  • Anise pods

  • 1 clove


Total Time: 15 mins

Preparation level: mid

Cuisine: Latin


Recipe:

Add water, piloncillo, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and star anise to a medium pot. Place over med-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally so that the piloncillo fully dissolves. Remove the pot from the heat and add the coffee. Give it a stir, cover it, and let it steep for 6-8 minutes. Pour the coffee through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a coffee mug and serve.


Tips:

For extra-strength café de olla, let the coffee steep for 8 minutes.
