A mocha is 10x more enjoyable when I can forgo the ubiquitous, car-friendly paper cup and slowly sip it from a ginormous glass cup. This was from a brunch Janet and I enjoyed at Café Pirouette in Bellevue.
As I explained to the kids later, a mocha is hot chocolate with at least one shot of espresso.
Simple DIY mocha:
1 T of Pernigotti cocoa – great stuff, you have to buy it by the ‘kilo’
2 – 3 T of sugar
1T of cream
1/2 C warm milk to top off the cup
2 scoops coffee
1. Assemble the AeroPress – I find it useful to put this together upside-down, plunger in and add coffee.
2. Add hot (175°F) water to the coffee and swirl.
3. Press into a cup with cocoa and sugar. Stir until mixed.
4. Add cream and milk.
