Coffee Lingo: Mocha

HotChocolate-14

Mocha: (n.) hot chocolate + latte = the best of both worlds.

At La Colombe, a mocha is basically a latte (double shot of espresso and steamed milk) with 1oz of unsweetened cocoa. We use 100% dark chocolate to create a rich syrup to serve as the base of our mochas. Then we pour the espresso over it and use the steamed milk to swirl the two, topping it with some latte art. We make our mochas unsweet by default and leave it to you to add sugar to taste. It’s the perfect thing when you can’t decide if you want a latte or a hot chocolate: just go for both.
