Café de Olla (Aromatic Sweet Coffee)
3 cups of water
2 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 1/2 ounces of piloncillo or... 2 1/2 tbsp of firmly packed dark brown sugar + 1/2 tsp of molasses
1 little strip of orange zest (avoid cutting the white stuff, you want only the orange skin)
2 tbsp of freshly ground dark roast coffee
Combine the water, cinnamon stick, piloncillo, cloves & orange zest in a clay pot or stainless steel pot and cook over medium heat until the piloncillo is dissolved. Add the coffee and stir. Continue to simmer for about 5 mins more, strain and serve hot.
