For many coffee lovers with a sweet tooth, chocolate and coffee make the perfect marriage. Combine hot chocolate with espresso, and you almost have a café mocha. This drink is the American brainchild that is a chocolate-infused version of a latte, also called a mochaccino. The name is a nod to the town of Mocha, Yemen, a dominant exporter of coffee with a notable chocolate taste.
This has been a popular drink at many coffee shops for years. It can be jazzed up or even served iced. Getting a drink like this is a pretty penny at the coffee house. If you’re an addict of these drinks, you know that the costs can add up quickly.
Luckily, it’s easy to make, and you can put in as many decadent additions as you desire. Typically served with milk froth on top, you can adjust the amount to be more or less. Add whipped cream to the frothed milk and any other toppings that suit your fancy, and enjoy the dessert feel of this drink.
Here, we will show you how to make a café mocha easily in your kitchen.
Note: Use the espresso method you’re comfortable with or have on hand. We’ll be using a Moka pot. It’s always recommended to use finely ground coffee for making espresso, whether it’s pre-ground or you’re grinding your own beans.
