Directions

  1. Bring the water, sugar, cinnamon, and clove to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then remove from the heat, stir in the coffee grounds, cover, and steep for 5 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and chocolate syrup, then strain through several layers of cheesecloth to remove the coffee grounds and spices. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Ohkay, so I don't have cheesecloth but I do have a 4 cup coffeemaker so I cut the recipe down to work that way (brewed like Starbucks, two tablespoons per cup--I used Caffe Verona blend) and I added the cinnamon stick and clove to my grounds in the.....cone filter. After it brewed, I stirred in the (Splenda) brown sugar, vanilla and my own homemade chocolate syrup. Honestly? This was heaven. I didn't have whipped cream for the top but next time I make this, I'll be sure to have it on hand. This was wonderful and quite a treat. I did add just a touch of warmed half-n-half because I can't drink my coffee black.

Did exactly as directions said, but didn't taste that great. By the time it was strained the coffee was cooled down a lot. Had strong taste from either the clove or cinnamon, couldn't tell for sure which. Won't be making again.

OhmyGod!!! what a wonderful recipe. The 2nd time I customized it to our taste buds for a more robust taste: increased sugar to 1/2 cup, increased cloves to 2, increased coffee beans to 3/4 cup... to die for. The 3rd time I ran out of whipped cream to I whipped 8 oz of heavy cream and mixed it with 4 teaspoons of sifted confectioner's sugar. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!!

I'm rating this 5-stars because I've actually never had Mexican coffee so I am not 100% sure what it's supposed to taste like, but I would imagine this is a great version of it! It is delicious, although I must say I think it must be an acquired taste. It's a very strong flavor. I scaled the recipe to 2 and because I did not have whole cloves or cinnamon sticks I used a little less than 1/4t ground cinnamon and a few shakes ground cloves. Good recipe.

Really good on a cold Michigan morning. I just made this in my coffeemaker by putting all the spices and coffee together and brewing the coffee. The chocolate syrup was a nice touch. Making this in the coffeemaker made the process easier and the end result was super-tasty. Thanks for sharing!

I'm not sure what coffee blend would work the best with this recipe. I used the Duncan Donuts and it seemed a bit too acidic.

WOW! This is an awesome drink to warm you up. I was tempted to make myself a grownup coffee drinktoday but still had tons of snow shoveling to do so this looked like the right thing, and it was. Since it was just me, I used cofee I had percolated and heated it on the stove with seasonings and I used carob instead of chocolate for dietary needs. I will definitely make this again and may not wait for the next snowy day to do it!

I was looking for something different for an all-night study session from the ingredients in my kitchen. I made this recipe without chocolate and with steamed milk in a french press. It worked wonderfully! The flavor is very nice.
