Cafe de Olla

Spiced Coffee

4 cups water
2/3 a cup coarsely ground dark roast coffee
1 inch cinnamon quill
raw sugar, to taste
1/2 inch strip of orange zest (optional)
  1. Bring the water to the boil, add orange and cinnamon and simmer two for two minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat, add the coffee and stir thoroughly.
  3. Leave sit for five minutes, add sugar to taste, strain and serve.
NB. The strip of orange zest is easily prepared with a vegetable peeler. It's addition to coffee I have never seen outside of Chiapas, but it is wonderful all the same.
