Mexican Coffee Recipe Brazilian Style

My cousin Didi went to Mexico just to ride the donkeys. After a few years there, she returned with the original recipe for this drink. A few hours of experimentation and we came with this new secret formula, Mexican Coffee Recipe Brazilian Style, after my daughter accidentally dropped some mango marmalade inside my mug.

What can I say? She’s a culinary genius!

You can try this recipe with any commercial or gourmet Brazilian coffee.

Preparation time is 5 minutes after coffee is ready.


  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 fluid ounce hot water
  • 3/4 cup strong Brazilian coffee, prepared with 1 tiny-pinch cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tsp pineapple liqueur
  • 1 tsp sugarless mango marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon whipped cream


  1. Add the cinnamon pinch to your desired amount of coffee.
  2. If making too much coffee, add more cinnamon.
  3. Prepare the Brazilian coffee with your usual brewing method. (NO BOILING!)
  4. I use machine dip brewing for this recipe
  1. Pour sugar and hot water into a coffee mug.
  2. Add the coffee.
  3. Add both coffee and pineapple liqueurs
  4. Add the mango marmalade
  5. Stir do dissolve.
  6. Spoon in the whipped cream gently on top of the coffee.
  7. Serve immediately (try to keep it hot, but not too much)

A liqueur mojo is an option cocktail with a shot of liqueur. It may be served in a proper glass, usually with cream and sugar.

Liqueur brewsters are all alternatives to what is generally recognized as Irish coffee, hot Java with whiskey and a coat of non-whipped cream floating on top.

Liqueur coffee is especially popular in Spanish Galicia. They consider it a traditional liquor. Nationally acknowledged throughout Spain as “carajillo”, it is prepared from a mixture of coffee, sugar, and strong distilled alcoholic liquor like orujo, aguardiente or rum.

    Great post! I love the story behind how this amazing cup of coffee came to existence. Isn’t that the best way. Accidental Invention. I’m not much of a coffee drinker unless of course it taste like a dessert which this one seems to fit that bill. Excited to try it. Thanks for the recipe and great story behind it.

    Cool article. I enjoy a good cup of coffee and this sounds like a suitably exotic recipe.

    Like Cary comments above, I love the element of accident, with your daughter dropping the marmalade in your coffee. Sounds like a real “Eureka!” moment. Anyway, I will definitely give this recipe a try.

    Best, al

    Thank you for coffee recipe, I really really like the way you explained it, Me and my family will be trying it next week. I wonder if I can use Persian saffron in it… Maybe a twist in it? What do you think?

      I’m generally all for experimenting. Start with very small amounts and keep increasing until you find that you crossed the line. Then come back and tell us what happened. Cheers!
