As a typical Tamilian, I know only one kind of coffee and that is, of course, The filter coffee. Once you are used to that, it’s almost impossible to like anything else. So I find it hard to enjoy any coffee in the innumerable cafes and coffee chains. So my usual rule is to have coffee at home and tea outside.

When the drinks theme came up in Blogging Marathon, I thought I should try making these coffee varieties at home and maybe I will like them better. Well, I did like them better but filter coffee still rules.

So here is the recipe for Mocha with milk and cocoa, from here.

For 1 cup of coffee


Hot brewed coffee                               3/4 cup

Unsweetened cocoa powder             1 tbsp

Sugar                                                        1 tbsp

Milk                                                          3 tbsp

  • Pour the hot coffee into a mug.
  • Add the cocoa, sugar and milk.
  • Stir well till the sugar is dissolved.
  • Enjoy!


  1. The sugar and milk can be adjusted to suit your taste. If you are reducing sugar, then also reduce cocoa powder accordingly.

  10. I get overloaded on caffeine when I have had mocha in the past with the caffeine from bothe the coffee and chocolate. It makes me too wired so I have not had this since college days when I was once up for almost a full day after having a large mug of it. But it does look good
