Puerto Ricans love the holiday season. I’m serious, guys, We really, really, REALLY LOVE to celebrate. Believe it or not, Puerto Rico takes pride in having the longest holiday season in the world! For six straight weeks, you can find us hosting lots of parties with friends and family, featuring festive music and delicious food. And no Puerto Rican fiesta is complete without coquito, the official holiday beverage of the island.

Coquito is reminiscent of eggnog, but it features the tropical flavors of coconut, cinnamon and rum (OH YEAH!). Everyone has their own recipe, and they’re usually closely guarded family secrets, so I’m super excited to share this recipe for coffee coquito with you. Flavored versions of coquito are a newer trend, and I’ve seen lots of different flavors, like pistachio, chocolate, and of course, coffee!

The chilly holiday season is a perfect time to drink more coffee, and with my Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over coffee maker, I can bring my family together with yummy coffee flavored beverages any time I want!

Pour Over coffee brings out the true flavor of the coffee beans by using optimal coffee brewing temperatures and the right amount of coffee and water. Hot water is slowly passed through the grounds, extracting the richest flavors and aromas. Typically this process involves weighing the grounds and water and calculating the optimal ratio. But fear no more, pour over coffee is easier than ever, thanks to the Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over coffee maker, available at Walmart! Hover on the image below to check it out!

The Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over coffee maker takes the guesswork of pour over with an on screen step by step guide that walks you through the pour over process. An integrated auto-measure scale automatically calculates the right amount of coffee and water, and tells you just how much to add for a consistently great tasting cup of pour over coffee. Mr. Coffee® is easy to use, uncomplicated, and creates reliable results.

The Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over is a part of a larger Mr. Coffee® brand revitalization. With an updated product and packaging design, they’re dishing out thoughtful innovations that make coffee brewing at home more enjoyable. I was amazed at all the awesome java making products from Mr. Coffee® I encountered at my local Walmart!

The Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over uses a step by step on screen guide to easily make great tasting pour over coffee every time, so you can make specialty coffee easy to brew at home!

The Mr. Coffee® At-Home Pour Over includes an electric gooseneck kettle, dripper, carafe, integrated scale & timer, and instructions built into one seamless system. You can brew 2, 4, or 6 cups of coffee with an easy, integrated step by step on screen guide to walk you through the pour over process. Only Mr. Coffee® keeps it simple to make great coffee, so you can get on with life.

My coffee coquito features Cuban Roast coffee for an extra java jolt, but feel free to use your favorite medium-grind coffee. I love sharing coquito with friends and family. Coquito makes a great gift, and will definitely make you the most popular guest at any holiday shindig.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add more or less rum, just replace any amount you cut with an equal amount of whole milk.

For even more coffee flavor, add 1-2 teaspoons of instant espresso powder to the mix. 

Can’t drink or don’t like rum? Substitute a flavored vodka (I suggest coconut or vanilla!)

For a non-alcoholic or virgin coquito, cut out the rum, and replace it with whole milk.

    Hubby loved this recipe! I used Cafe Bustelo because I do not have a pour over machine and it was great!
