Making the perfect homemade mocha is one part recipe and two parts quality ingredients. In this case, freshly roasted coffee and artisan chocolates vs. the cheap sugary stuff. Here's a quick recipe. You can read my full post for recommendations on ingredients and fun variations: Making a Mocha.

Simple Mocha Recipe
-1 cup of brewed coffee
-4 tablespoons of your favorite chocolate bar shavings or cocoa powder (roughly 1/4 cup)
-1/2 cup of cream or milk

*You can make this work with any amount of milk or chocolate as long as you keep it roughly 2 parts milk to 1 part chocolate.

Directions:
Brew 8 oz. of coffee with your regular brew method. Add your chocolate into your milk and heat it up slowly using a double broiler or microwave. If melting in a microwave, heat the mixture for 30 second intervals and stir, until creamy and fully combined.
