I made this for my husband as I do not drink coffee, he is still raving about it. He really enjoyed the hint of cinnamon. Being he is a man who loves his coffee blacker than dirt, I was surprised that he liked the sweetness of this coffee. He did comment that it is more of a dessert coffee vs a get you going in the morning type coffee.

Decided to make this for ZWT 8 the Mexican Leg for the Winers, Diners and Chives as it sounded so easy. Have to admit to being a little nervous as I'm one of those folks who likes her coffee to taste like coffee with no sugar or extras. But found I really liked this with the brown sugar and cinnamon was so differant, not to sweet and just a hint of the cinnamon in the background. I really enjoyed it.

I love coffee and this one is special. So much flavor and it was so quick and easy to make. I can see why its served all night. A nice mellow sweet coffee with a hint of cinnamon. Thank you Bethie for sharing a recipe that I will be enjoying often. Made for The Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Mexico.

Very refreshing! I made using some plunger coffee and the amount directed on the pack and it had a nice hint of cinnamon without being overly sweet.

Absolutely delicious! I only made two cups, so I used one teaspoon of brown sugar, two heaping teaspoons coffee and two cps water and I let it steep for a while. Will make again, for sure! Thanks for posting, made for I RECOMMEND tag game, 2012

I just LOVE Cafe de la Olla and had no idea it was this easy to make! The first batch (of two today!) was made exactly as written. Tonight's batch was made a bit stronger to get more of a coffee taste. I can tell I'll be making this a lot! Even the DH, who doesn't like what he calls "foo foo coffee", loved this one and wants me to make more tomorrow to serve over ice. Yum! Thanks for posting!

Excellent Caf? de Olla! I've usually made it the "traditional" way, boiling the cinnamon and sugar some time before adding the coffee, then letting it sit for another couple of minutes, and I was a little anxious it might be not flavourful enough. But it was great, less intense than I was used to, but still excellent. Very nice to have a recipe that can be made more quickly. Thanks for sharing :)

I enjoyed this! It is really different than I usually drink my coffee. I tried it without cream, and with cream and I liked it better with cream, but it was good without too. I did make the coffee a little stronger, but I like very stong coffee. When I added cream it diluted the cinnamon flavor , so next time I would add a little more. To be honest when I first tried it, I wasn't really sure if I liked it, but the more I drank the better it tasted, lol! Thanks for a new tasty experience! Made for ZWT8

As a rule I don't like black coffee, but this recipe was pretty good. I also didn't have a cinnamon sticks, so I used ground. Next time I make it I'm adding cream. Made for Veg 'N Swap tag.
