Cafe de Olla


A sweet coffee drink, made with chocolate and cloves. Preparation is a bit unusual. You steep the coffee grounds with the other ingredients instead of traditional brewing.


  • 8 cups water
  • 4 oz ground coffee
  • 4 oz brown sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 cloves, whole
  • 1 square of semi-sweet chocolate


Boil water in a saucepan, then add cinnamon, cloves, sugar and chocolate. When the mixture comes to a boil, skim off foam. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then add coffee. Steep for 5 minutes then serve.
