Café de olla (lit. pot coffee) is a traditional way to prepare coffee in Mexico. This drink is traditionally prepared in earthen clay pots, some made by artisans. The distinct flavor of the Café de olla is provided by cinnamon and piloncillo. This type of coffee is principally consumed in the cold climates and in rural areas. To prepare the café de olla it is indispensable to have one of these pots because it is something that gives a special flavor to the coffee. The flavor of the Café de olla is provided by different ingredients as grain coffee, cinnamon, and also the piloncillo that is a traditional candy principally from Europe (southern Spain), Asia (India) and specially the American countries of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Panamá, Ecuador, and Mexico.
