Mad Scientist

So, ever since I made the switch to instant coffee, the sky is the limit as to what other coffee house drinks I can create at home. My latest creation is my at-home spin on the cafe mocha. Well, technically, it’s a cross between a cafe au lait and a mocha since I’m using instant coffee and not instant espresso, but you get the point.

It’s simple, just add one packet of hot cocoa mix to a large mug. Add a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee, top it off with hot water (which I usually boil in a kettle) and then add your usual amount of milk or cream. Mix and enjoy.

It’s chocolately, it’s caffeinated, it’s an abomination of a cafe mocha and I love it. For the next round of testing, I’m going to heat up milk to see how that tastes. My guess is that it will be pretty damn good.
