Café Noir

Recipe by littleturtle

A South Louisianna favorite. For the most part tourists can't stand it and locals can't live without it, but one thing's for sure: this WILL wake you up in the morning. Traditionally made in a French Drip pot, called a biggin, but a modern electric coffee maker works just fine.
