Sweet, spicy.... Mexican coffee!

Mexican Coffee

Mexican coffee is the perfect combination of strong, freshly roasted coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon. We've topped it with whipped cream for a decadent breakfast drink or afternoon pick-me-up - but it is also just as good without!

You’ll love the sweet and spiced flavors if you’re a fan of coffee, cinnamon, and chocolate. The cinnamon is brewed right with the coffee grounds and gives the coffee a delicious and spicy flavor without adding the texture of a ground spice to the finished drink.


  • 3/4 cup ground coffee, regular or decaffeinated
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup chocolate syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon sticks, whipped creamchocolate shavings, optional, garnish


  1. Add the coffee grounds and cinnamon to the filter basket of your coffee pot. Add the water and brew as normal.
  2. While the coffee is brewing, bring the milk, cream, chocolate syrup and brown sugar to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan. 
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the brewed coffee to the mixture. Slowly whisk in the vanilla extract. 
  4. Divide the Mexican coffee among 4 cups and top with whipped cream.
  5. To garnish add a sprinkle of cinnamon or chocolate shavings, and stick in a cinnamon stick. 

Just remember that ground coffee is best grounded fresh so make sure you have a grinder at home - a hand held can be just as good. Check out our rhino hand held grinder.
