It may be difficult to believe however, the term Mocha was invented in year 1773 and originally did not have anything to do with chocolate or a combination of chocolate and coffee as it referred to a variety of coffee!
It is difficult to know exactly how the term mocha came to be used for coffee and chocolate, but it is often said that the beans had a distinct chocolate taste.
- 18g ground espresso, or 1 espresso pod
- 250ml milk
- 1 tsp dark drinking chocolate
Step 1: Make around 35ml espresso using a coffee machine and pour into the base of your cup. Add the drinking chocolate and mix well until smooth.
Step 2: Steam the milk with the steamer attachment so that it has around 4-6cm of foam on top. Hold the jug so that the spout is about 3-4cm above the cup and pour the milk in steadily.
As the volume within the cup increases, bring the jug as close to the surface of the drink as possible whilst aiming into the centre. Once the milk jug is almost touching the surface of the coffee, tilt to speed up the rate of pour.
As you accelerate, the milk will hit the back of the cup and start naturally folding in on itself to create a pattern on the top.
Step 3: Enjoy it!
