Nothing beats the aroma of a freshly brewed cup of coffee but add a few simple spices and you've got Mexico in a cup. Cafe de olla, once a peasant drink, is now popular throughout Mexico. Brewed in earthenware pots, the coffee is flavoured with a mixture of dark brown sugar and cinnamon. Here's a cheat's version, a simple syrup you can make at home.
5 tbsp water
4 tbsp muscovado sugar
1 tsp cinnamon / 1 cinnamon stick
Place all the ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil while stirring. Allow to bubble away for 20 minutes, until the liquid has reduced to a syrupy consistency. Divide among 4 cups of freshly brewed coffee.
