Café de Olla
by @presleyspantry

This recipe comes to us from @presleyspantry, a Los Angeles-based Mexican-American baker, and her vibrant cookbook ¡Viva Desserts! While it is traditional to use a clay pot (the olla part of café de olla!) to prepare this warming drink, you can use any pot you have on hand. You can serve it black or with milk or cream as you enjoy your typical coffee.
