Also weighing in? KPCC's John Rabe. He went to Tierra Caliente to find out more about his favorite style of coffee, Cafe de olla.
Rabe spoke with Jessie Velasco, one of the people who run Tierra Caliente, and he explained what Cafe de olla is.
"Cafe de olla is a Mexican version of coffee. It's our own little version that we make at home...So, we have our pot right here, always on the stove. What we do is we grab a packet of coffee, we add a little bit of cinnamon, a little bit of sugar cane, all natural ingredients. It's very grainy, just 'cause we don't filter it. Sometimes we use a strainer, but most people just like it straight."
