Tradtional Mexican Coffee

Traditionally you would drink this café gritty - but I strain mine!


  1. Heat the water, spices and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the coffee grounds and bring to a boil.
  3. Simmer for 2 mintues.
  4. Stir, cover and remove from heat.
  5. Allow the coffee grounds to settle and then deftly pour the café into mugs - or strain into mugs.

Love the aroma of cloves and cinnamon while it was cooking. For a black coffee, the spices gave it an interesting flavor. Thanks for sharing!
