Linda here with a Shout Out to Doug and Amy at EXO COFFEE – http://www.EXOCOFFEE.com- here in the Old Pueblo. Cold Brews work like magic medicine on the hot days of summer – and every day of the year. But to make a cold brew with the rare and wild chiltepin, and its nurse plant of choice, the Mesquite tree, takes the flavor experience to a whole new level.
The rare tiny chiles that they use in their brew come from plants on and around our ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Madres, so we feel especially connected to this brew, but so should you. After all, chiltepin is The Mother of all chiles, and so has likely touched your palate and life one way or the other. And it’s bright green leaves, white flowers, and bright red fruit have thrived for 8000 years because it benefits from the shade and protection of legume trees like the Mesquite. And at EXO COFFEE you can sip these two desert miracles side by side.
I was inspired to create a similar Chiltepin Cold Brew in my own kitchen. I asked Doug if I could share what I came up with, and he was gracious and said yes. He shared that the recipe is apparently already in the Food Conspiracy Cookbook.

I do not like coffee very much but my honey love it and this was great for him to know.
Anna – How wonderful that you are so inclusive of the taste of your Sweetheart – let that “honey” of yours know that I sweetened my cold brew with honey just in case he likes his a little sweeter. Thanks so much for reading our Savor Sisters Blog!
This is great! Just followed the directions and have my cold brew brewing. So appreciate the chance to create this flavorful drink myself, it smells delicious. Great photos.
Thank you so much Liz! I hope that it delighted your senses!
