I have never been to Mexico. Pretty much everyone I know has, but I'm still one of those people who haven't gone on a vacation since the stone ages. There was a period of 4 years that I was traveling a lot, I went to England twice, and to the Philippines (pretty much both places to visit family)
So I'm not actually sure if this is actually coffee popular or made in Mexico, but I combined recipes I found online that claimed they were "Mexican coffee" so I am going about this on blind faith.
I love making different variations to the coffee I drink. You know, since I drink coffee almost ALL the time, I would like to switch it up. Try something new. And I'm quite satisfied with this. But that's not going to stop me from experimenting more...
