- In a medium saucepan, add the water and spices. Lightly toast the piloncillo until it’s fragrant before adding to your other ingredients so that you don’t overcook them into an inedible brick!

What to serve with café de olla?
You can have Mexican coffee any time of day, but it tastes best at breakfast. Alongside your cafe de olla you should eat eggs and chorizo for a perfect start to the morning!
If you decide to have a mug of coffee early in the morning, I prefer it with some: Creamy oatmeal topped off with cinnamon and Gorditas de harina or huevos motuleños (eggs Motul-style).
If I have a cup of coffee in the evening, say for dessert (with some shots) my go-to desserts to serve it along are: Traditional Mexican conchas, Seillanos style polvorones from Mexico City. For those unfamiliar with them they’re similar to Spanish doughnuts but sweeter and filled with sugar or cinnamon–either way you can’t beat how delicious these snacks taste! You might also want try out Churros dipped into sugary powder before being fried crisp on their exterior edges then eaten warm fresh off ovens plate
Tips and tricks
- For regular-strength café de olla, let the coffee steep for 6 minutes. This will give you a strong cup with no bitterness or astringency in taste!

- The perfect way to enjoy an extra cups of coffee is by turning them into iced Mexican coffee! Simply transfer the strained, cooled down drink from jar and let it chill in your fridge before serving over ice.
