  • 1 cup water
  • 0.5 ounces piloncillo (or 1/2 cup dark brown sugar)
  • 1 freshly brewed pod Maud's Organic Mexican Dark Roast
  • Mexican cinnamon sticks 
  • Star anise
  • Whole cloves


  1. In a medium olla or pot, add water, piloncillo, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and a star anise pod.

  2. Place over medium-high and stir often until the piloncillo completely dissolves and the water comes to a boil. 

  3. Remove the pot from the heat. Add the brewed pod, stir to combine, and cover. Let the coffee steep for 6 minutes for regular strength or 8 minutes for extra strength.

     4. Pour the coffee through a strainer into a coffee mug and enjoy!
