Cafe de olla (Mexican coffee)
Cafe de olla “Mexican coffee” : Means coffee from a pot.

A good cup of coffee in the morning is a routine for many. But, what if I told you that in the old days people would have a pot brewing coffee all day long. The weather didn’t matter; wether it was hot, humid, or cold, coffee was a must. What makes this cafe de olla unique is the way it is made using a clay pot. I want to share with you this wonderful recipe that reminds me of my beautiful Mexico in the state of Michoacán.
