    End Your Meal with the Sweet Indulgence of Mexican Coffee

    Looking for the right Mexican coffee recipe turns up a few different drinks, all called “Mexican coffee” and all somewhat different.

    Sometimes there’s alcohol, sometimes not. Most feature extra spices like cinnamon. What all the different Mexican Coffee Recipes have in common is added sweetness to turn coffee from a morning pick-me-up into a delicious after-dinner delight.

    In many cultures, after-dinner coffee is thought to aid in the digestion, and encourage additional conversation after the meal is over. And who are we to argue with that? So here’s two of our favorite Mexican coffee recipes, so you pick the one that’s right for your next luxurious get-together.

    Mulled Spices Mexican Coffee Recipe

    This version combines elements like cloves with sugar and coffee to make a spicy drink reminiscent of “mulled” wine and similar concoctions. A powerful, distinctive taste that ends a meal with an exclamation point.

    Ingredients

    • 12 cups of hot coffee
    • 1 half cup packed brown sugar
    • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
    • 4 whole cloves
    • 1 half cup chocolate syrup
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • Whipped cream to add on top for extra sweetness

    Instructions

    Add brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves together into the hot, freshly made coffee. Mix until the sugar is dissolved. Then add the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Pour up the coffee and top each cup with a little whipped cream if the drinker wants.

    Feel the Burn: The Tequila Mexican Coffee Recipe

    Another popular way to spice up your Mexican style coffee is with the addition of liquor. Much like an after-dinner cocktail, alcoholic Mexican coffee closes out main meal and sets up your dinner guests for good times and good conversation ahead.

    Ingredients

    • 12 cups of hot brewed coffee
    • 2 cans (14 oz.) condensed milk
    • 2 cups coffee liqueur
    • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • ? cup tequila
    • ground cinnamon to taste

    Instructions

    Mix all the ingredients together until evenly blended. The coffee liqueur is the most important part, with tequila available for those who want even more of a kick. The sweet, flavorful burn creates a memorable end cap between dinner and the rest of the night’s festivities.

    Drinking Your Gourmesso Coffee, Mexican Style

    These two recipes have something else in common: both are huge, communal batches of coffee that assume everyone wants their drinks delivered in the exact same way. Not exactly the Gourmesso method.

    So Here’s another way to add more “Mexican” flavor to your Gourmesso and allow every one of your guests to receive a tailor-made experience.

    Ingredients

    • ground cinnamon
    • ground cloves
    • cocoa powder
    • vanilla creamer
    • chocolate syrup
    • coffee liqueur
    • frothed milk
    • coarse brown sugar
    • coarse sea salt

    Instructions

    For each of your guests, brew an individually selected, custom-chosen cup of their personal Nespresso®* compatible capsule favorites. Then hand the cup over and let them add the flavors that best fit their personality.

    It’s worth noting, especially for espresso, that little additions go a long way. Just a little sprinkle of most of the solid ingredients, and a little dab of the liquid ones can have a profound effect on how the espresso tastes.

    For the frothed milk, turning your espresso into a latte is quite simple. And sprinkling a little cinnamon or cloves onto the top of the froth is both visually pleasing and tastefully enthralling.
    Once the mixing is done, what better way to end the first cup than by making a second cup and decorating it with an entirely new, diverse set of ingredients.

    If there’s one thing you should take away from this, it’s that there is no one Mexican coffee recipe you need to follow. Just a general outline of spices and flavors you can tailor to your heart’s content. And customizing it to suite your own ideas can be one of the most rewarding ways to present it to your group.

    Get mixing, and enjoy from Gourmesso!
