For a coffee lover, nothing beats the taste of freshly brewed coffee. However, that’s easier said than done when you’re in a rush or trying to please your caffeine-craving guests. Luckily, there is a recipe for one perfect cup of mocha coffee that will help you create that perfect pour-over morning brew. This recipe combines two popular flavors into one cup of coffee: strong black coffee and rich chocolate. With this easy swap, you can enjoy the taste of chocolate without compromising on taste or quality.
– 1/2 cup of coffee beans
– 3 tablespoons of milk
– 1 tablespoon of sugar
– 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
– 2 tablespoons of strong black coffee
– 2 tablespoons of hot water
– Coarse sea salt
1. Grind the coffee beans and pour them into a medium bowl. Add in the milk, sugar, cocoa powder, and hot water. Stir to combine until smooth. Then, slowly add in the strong black coffee until the mixture looks like chocolate milk (about 30 seconds). Stir in your desired amount of sea salt. Serve with a splash of vanilla extract if you prefer.
To make a cup of mocha coffee, simply combine 1/2 teaspoon of instant espresso with 1/2 cup of hot water in a paper filter lined with your favorite coffee grounds. Add 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and stir until thoroughly mixed. Let brew for 3 minutes before pouring over the freshly brewed coffee. You can serve this mocha delight either warm or cold.
To make this mocha coffee, start with a standard cup of black coffee. Then, slowly pour the chocolate syrup into the coffee while stirring it gently. The chocolate will slowly dissolve into your coffee and create a velvety texture. Next, you can add hazelnut extract to give your mocha a more nutty flavor. Finally, add in some steamed milk to get that creamy texture that makes your perfect mocha morning brew so delicious.
To make the perfect mocha coffee, start by heating your water. For a cup of hot chocolate, use about two cups of water for every one ounce of coffee. When the water is at a rolling boil, turn off the heat and add an ounce of whole bean ground coffee to it. Stir with a spoon until you have a uniform mixture. If you want to make stronger coffee, add up to three tablespoons of extra grounds.
Next, pour the boiling water over your grounds in a French press or paper filter. The longer you wait to pour in the boiling water, the stronger your brew will be. If you’re not using a French press or paper filter, pour the boiling water over your grounds right away and let it sit for about three minutes before pouring in more hot water through the spout. Let this brew for as long as you would like before serving it; typically four to five minutes is enough time depending on how strong you want your drink to be. Add ice cubes and milk when serving if desired.
There are a few things to consider when deciding on what type of coffee you would like. The first is the caffeine content. While most people prefer their coffee to be strong, some people may want to drink decaffeinated coffee. It’s also important to decide on how much time you have for your morning brew. It’s easier to make more complex drinks if you have more time and in this case, it’s recommended that you use a French press. If you’re looking for a quick and simple pour-over, then a dripper will work best.
