Café de olla

Café de olla at a restaurant in Mexico

Café de olla (lit. pot coffee) is a traditional way to prepare coffee in Mexico. This drink is traditionally prepared in earthen clay pots, some made by artisans. The distinct flavor of Café de olla is derived from cinnamon and piloncillo. This type of coffee is principally consumed in cold climates and in rural areas. To prepare café de olla it is essential to use a traditional earthen clay pot, as this gives a special flavor to the coffee.

The flavor of Café de olla is created by different ingredients including ground coffee, cinnamon, and also piloncillo, which is a traditional candy from Europe (southern Spain), Asia (India), and especially the American countries of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Panamá, Ecuador, and Mexico.[1][2][3][4]
