Twist:

Café de Olla dates back to the Mexican Revolution. Soldaderas roasted cinnamon, piloncillo, cloves, coffee and chocolate in a clay pot. They served this authentic Mexican coffee to soldiers to boost their energy during the day. Our twist incorporates Irish cream with a spiked topping of whip cream, that most certainly will replace your morning cup of joe.
