Mexican Coffee

Mexican Coffee

Sugar and spice make this chocolate-flavored coffee so nice!


  • 12 cups water
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1 cup regular-grind coffee (dry)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate-flavor syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, if desired


  1. Heat water, brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves to boiling in Dutch oven, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in coffee; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in chocolate syrup and vanilla extract; remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes for coffee grounds to settle.
  3. Strain coffee into coffee server or individual cups; discard grounds mixture.
  4. Serve with whipped cream.

Yield: 10 servings (about 1 cup each)

Did You Know...Authentic Mexican chocolate is known for its hint of cinnamon.

Special Touch: If you'd like, pick up a shaker with coffee toppings, such as cocoa and cinnamon, from a coffee or gourmet food shop. Pass the shaker when serving mugs of the hot coffee so folks can sprinkle a topping or two over their whipped cream!
