Growing up, I vividly remember looking forward to all of our family holiday traditions. Which is why it’s so important for me that I keep our Mexican traditions alive and that I pass them down to our kids. So in that traditional holiday spirit, we’re getting ready to celebrate Día de los Muertos with our loved ones. This year, we will be adding a Café de Olla (Mexican coffee) to our drink list. Café de Olla is perfect to drink during cooler days as it gives off a fragrant scent from the piloncillo and cinnamon – not to mention warms you right up!

Why We Celebrate Día de los Muertos

And in case you’re wondering what Día de los Muertos is, it’s “a holiday celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November. It originated and is mostly observed in Mexico but also in other places, especially by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. Although associated with the Catholic celebrations of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, it has a much less solemn tone and is portrayed as a holiday of joyful celebration rather than mourning.[3] The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pay respects and to remember friends and family members who have died.” – Wikipedia

So in honor of Día de Muertos, we’re making our aunt’s delicious Café de Olla recipe.

Adding to our traditional recipes

The Café de Olla recipe below includes the traditional version from our tia’s (aunts) recipe; however, we cooked it in our NEW Crockpot ™ Design Series®. Not only is the coffee easier to make in the Crockpot ™ Design Series® but it’s also a great way to keep it continuously warm for any get-together. The new Crockpot ™ Design Series® features a streamlined design and modern-vintage aesthetic. It’s available in 3 qt, 4.5 qt, and 7 qt sizes in new colors and styles!
