Strange coffee prep while traveling?

standish | May 18, 2012 09:03 AM

I was in Quito, Ecuador staying at a small b&b/hostel this winter and the owner had a strange coffee preparation. I recall asking about it, but don't recall the details now. Basically she had a tall glass refrigerated decanter of thick, syrupy coffee that was possibly slightly sweet. You simply added this to hot water with or without milk to a desirable proportion.

Anyone have an idea of what this preparation is called?
