Mmmmmmmocha. When coffee and cocoa beans hook up and get real with each other, they create one of the most enduring and appreciated flavor combos around. You'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't dig the espresso-infused chocolatey goodness of a well-crafted mocha -- and while it may be a little on the sweeter side than some of us can handle in the morning (Read: Gail), it's a nice mid-afternoon pick-me-up or a great option for an after dinner dessert.
There are many different ways in which you could whip up this drink, and we asked Gail to demonstrate two variations. First, she pulled the shots into the chocolate, mixed them together and then added steamed milk on top. Second, she made chocolate milk, steamed that up and then combined it with a separately pulled espresso shot. Watch her make choco-magic on the Rocket Giotto Evoluzione!
