Mexican Coffee Recipe - A Must In Your Cookbook

Mexican Coffee Recipe

Coffee lovers who like to experiment with cultural recipes, may want to incorporate a Mexican coffee recipe into their coffee cookbook.

Central and South America is a leading source for coffee beans, which has led them to develop distinct flavors of roast.

Mexican coffee, for example, is usually found in dark roasts. It has a sharp flavor and deep aroma, and a little bit of an oily consistency.

Usually, Mexican coffee is grown on smaller farms, but there are more than 100,000 growers, which puts Mexico on the list of world's largest producers of coffee beans.

Like coffee that comes from other countries, there are caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees, different blends and roasts, and even organic coffee blends available for "green" coffee lovers.

To make these blends of coffee even more distinctive, many drinkers of Mexican coffee blends come up with a Mexican coffee recipe of their own to personalize their coffee drinks. In these recipes, people add flavors that compliment and bring out the sharp, dark flavor of the coffee.

Easy To Try At Home

  • Before brewing your favorite coffee, put three long cinnamon sticks and a quarter-cup of firmly packed brown sugar in the bottom of your coffee carafe.
  • Once the coffee has brewed, stir it with a wooden spoon until it's blended well.
  • Serve it immediately, and add milk or sugar, if desired.
  • For a little extra cinnamon flavor, serve the coffee with a cinnamon stick in the coffee cup that you can use to stir the sugar and milk.

Since the ingredients are added to the carafe before brewing, this particular Mexican coffee recipe is quite easy and great for something a little different on short notice.

  • Before brewing your coffee, mix the coffee grounds with a tablespoon of cinnamon and quarter of a teaspoon of nutmeg.
  • While your coffee is brewing, combine and heat two ounces of brown sugar, two and a half ounces of chocolate syrup, and eight ounces of milk.
  • Stir the mixture until the sugar is melted and dissolved.
  • Pour the sugar mixture into the hot coffee, and add a teaspoon of vanilla before serving.

After-Dinner Drink

  • Pour one ounce Kahlua and half an ounce of tequila into a glass coffee mug of fresh, strong coffee.
  • Stir gently.
  • Garnish the drink with whipped cream and top with a little nutmeg.

This alcoholic Mexican coffee recipe is an interesting alternative to Irish coffee, but just as delicious.

Mexican coffee has a distinct flavor, and, with a little experimentation, you can find a recipe that takes the best of the coffee blend and the best of your favorite flavors to make something that just might become your new favorite coffee.
