Here’s a gourmet coffee recipe that we’ve made many times during the holidays. There’s nothing quite as good as a houseful of family waking up to this special coffee treat.
Café Olé Recipe:
1/2 Cup Coffee* (We use freshly ground, fair trade, organic, French roast)
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
4 Cups Cold Water
4 Cups Milk, heated to scalding
1 Cup Organic Sugar or Brown Sugar
*Use up to 1 cup ground coffee if you like a stronger coffee.
Combine the coffee and the cinnamon. Brew the coffee in a coffee maker with the 4 cups water. When brewed, stir in the sugar until dissolved. Add hot milk. When ready to serve, place a cinnamon stick in each cup and fill with Café Ole.
I have also transferred this to a pretty chafing carafe to keep warm which also makes a nice holiday breakfast center piece.
