Celebrating our beloved that have passed is something very natural and a beautiful Mexican tradition. The celebration gains importance as the special date approaches, because in my Mexican culture we never forget our departed and the legacy of our Aztec ancestors.
The commemoration of the Day of the Dead coincides with the Catholic celebration of All Saints Day. Which goes back hundreds of years ago when the Aztecs used to pay tribute to the goddess Mictecacihuatl whose function was to watch over the remains of the dead and presided the Aztec feasts of the dead which now are known as Día de los Muertos.
This celebration is a legendary tradition that has been passed from generation to generation. Every November 2 we remember and celebrate all those members of our family who have passed to enjoy a better life. By visiting them at the cemetery, bringing them flowers and paying tribute at home mounting an offering where we include all the favorite dishes of those that are no longer with us.
The coffee, the pan de muerto, the calaveritas and the calabaza en tacha never fail to show up in the offering. In addition to the flowers of cempasúchil, colored papel picado and candles. Since this celebration takes place at night coffee becomes a very important beverage to offer. As we spend the whole night waiting for the arrival of our beloved with a cafeteada. An ingrained tradition that we also put in practice during funerals. Adding a coffee beverage like the pumpkin spice cafe de olla is a good choice. Because who does not like a nice hot cafecito to comfort our spirit during those long hours while we wait to meet again on a cold night.
With Nestlé products we can make our Latino celebrations even more special. The Nestlé brand has always been a part of our lives and our pantry for the longest time. My Mamá Grande enjoyed cafecito time with a cup of NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ Coffee, 100% pure coffee. And now we continue to follow this tradition here in America. Because we can buy all our Nestlé favorites at Walmart.
We invite you to try this comforting pumpkin spice cafe de olla. Are you ready to enjoy it?
