Chocolate and coffee are two delicious flavors. Taken separately each can hold its own, but together, they're a powerhouse of deliciousness. If you've never had mocha before, the best way to try it the first time is by adding a little coffee to your hot chocolate or vice versa. This way, you can adjust amounts of each to your liking. From there, you might want to try blending equal parts cocoa and coffee powders, then stirring a bit of this into cream cheese for a pretzel or fresh fruit dip. In the warmer months, you might try your hand at a homemade batch of your favorite mocha ice cream recipe, using coffee beans and chocolate candy bar chunks. Mocha is a tasty help in boosting your spirits and staying up for work, studies or writing.

I am not a tea drinker, and tend to drink mostly coffee, black and hot chocolate, there are some wonderful variations and flavours when it comes to hot chocolate, of course mixing the two together is a great variation in itself, ideal in the winter months to keep you nice and warm, and of course there has to be a nice biscuit to accompany the Mocha!
