Café Mocha

Cuisinart original

It is hard to resist a chocolaty coffee drink, even more so when it’s topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Serve this drink in a tall glass for an extra-special presentation.


Makes 1 serving


1    espresso capsule
1    tablespoon chocolate syrup
½   cup milk (dairy or nondairy)
¼   cup heavy cream, whipped to a
      medium-soft peak
1    teaspoon shaved bittersweet
      chocolate, or unsweetened cocoa
      powder, for garnish (optional)

Nutritional information



1. Put the espresso capsule into the unit. Put
the chocolate syrup into a large mug and
place underneath the brew head. Reserve.
2. Put the milk into a separate heatproof mug.
Hold the mug in one hand and place under
the steam wand so the bottom of the wand
is just below the surface of the milk at an
angle. Select the Steam function and press
the START/STOP knob to start steaming.
While holding the mug at an angle, allow
the steam to move the milk around.
Once the milk begins to increase in volume,
lift the mug up higher so the steam wand
immerses deeper into the milk. When you
can feel that the milk in the mug is quite
hot, press the START/STOP knob to stop
steaming. Tap the mug a few times to
remove any larger bubbles.
3. Select a Single Espresso and allow it to
brew into the mug with the chocolate
4. Slowly pour the steamed milk into the mug
with the espresso and chocolate. Top the
drink off with about 2 tablespoons of the
whipped cream. If desired, top with shaved
chocolate or cocoa powder.
5. Serve immediately.
