Want to spice up your coffee (literally)? Try Mexican coffee! Commonly known as Café de Olla ("pot coffee") in Mexico, this coffee is easy to make at home (and we've included our favorite recipes below), but you can also buy Mexican-inspired coffee, too.
If you've never had Mexican coffee, let us introduce you to this delightfully sweet and spicy treat in a cup. In Mexico, coffee is often brewed with cinnamon sticks (which give it just the right amount of spice) and sugar—specifically piloncillo, which is unrefined whole cane sugar. You can also add orange peel for garnish.
