Mexican Coffee Recipe


  • 3/4 cup ground coffee (regular or decaf)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Garnish: whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, chocolate shavings


After gathering all ingredients, add the coffee grounds and cinnamon to the filter basket of the coffee pot. Then add 5 cups of water to the pot and brew normally.

While the coffee is brewing, bring the milk, heavy cream, brown sugar and chocolate syrup to a light simmer in a small saucepan. Cook on low heat to ensure the mixture doesn’t burn.

Remove the mixture from heat and add the freshly brewed coffee. Whisk in the vanilla extract.

Divide the coffee among four cups and top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy while hot!

Note: You can enjoy this recipe as iced coffee too. Allow the mixture to cool completely and then pour it over ice. Top with whipped cream.
