It has been too cold for me here in Oklahoma lately. So, it has bounced around from 50 degrees to the teens, but the wind chill is brutal! No snow makes it that much worse because it’s not even pretty, just cold.
To stay warm I love a good, hot beverage. and I LOVE coffee. Here is something you should try:
Mexican Coffee by Marcella Valladolid
2/3 cup ground dark roasted coffee, medium to coarse grind
1 quart water
1 cinnamon stick
1 (3-inch) piece orange peel
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the coffee grounds with 1 quart water, the sugar, cinnamon and orange peel. Stir to combine and bring to slow boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from the heat and let steep, covered for 5 minutes. Strain, through a fine mesh strainer and some cheese cloth, into cups and serve.
