Mexican Coffee

We love coffee in this house. In fact, hubby is a big Coffee SNOB. So when our friend Yvonne served us some awesome Mexican coffee at her dinner party, we were not disappointed! I’m not even going to go on and on about this because you are going to want to make this. Like. Right. NOW. (Seriously, you should.)

Mexican Coffee

2/3 cup course ground coffee (2 large rounds)

1 quart water

1 cinnamon stick

1 (3-inch) orange peel

3/4 cup brown sugar

1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat add coffee rounds and water, cinnamon sticks, sugar, and orange peel.

2. Stir to make sure sugar is dissolved. Cook for 5 minutes.

3. Remove from heat and let steep, covered, for 5 minutes. Strain through a mesh strainer into cups.

4. Serve with orange slices and some whipped cream.

Serves 4
