Café De Olla

Café de Olla is a drink that many of us will endearingly be reminded of our abuelitas, or our grandmothers. They spend mornings and evenings boiling coffee in a pot, filling the house with comforting smells of piloncillo, naranjas, and porsupuesto, café. Café de Olla, which translates to "coffee from pot," is a traditional drink that comes from Mexico, whose origins stem from soldiers who needed simple coffee during the war. Combining coffee with water into a clay pot, the older women prepared the beverage with spices that would keep them awake and alert during the Mexican Revolution in 1910. Today, it is a beverage we know and love for its simplicity, as well as its presentation in a beautifully decorated clay ceramic mug. It is an incredibly easy beverage to prepare at home with whatever coffee you have lying around.
