Too chocolatey for me. But otherwise very good. I followed another reviewer's advise and decreased the chocolate to 2 tsp and that makes it better for me. Also, I increased the milk to a total of 1/4 cup and it's almost like Coffee Bean. Read More

Contrary to most of the other reviewers, I don't think this recipe as written is anything close to Starbucks. However, it is a good starting point. I'd recommend these changes: 1) Use about 1/2 a cup of extra strong coffee, instead of a full cup of regular. Brew with the same amount of grounds, just half as much water. This mimics espresso. 2) Use a lot more milk. Starbucks mochas are mostly milk, with espresso added. 3) Do use the full tablespoon of both chocolate and sugar. With these changes it came much closer to approximating a Starbucks mocha. I enjoyed it! Read More

If you like a really strong chocolate taste...stick with 1 Tbls. If not 1-2 tsp. might be sufficient enough. Starbucks at home!! Thanks Johanna Read More

this recipe is perfect! I love cafe mochas from Starbucks but hate spending 3.00 on one! This is just as good and so inexpensive. Thanks for a great idea! And I did add a full tablespoon of cocoa to mine I love the chocolate flavor! Read More

Pretty basic mocha recipe. I suggest you do what I did and mix the dry ingredients together and wisk them into the hot coffee in a saucepan, then add a little vanilla flavoring. Read More

Pretty good. I love coffee and I love flavoured coffee even more. I did use the full 1 tablespoon of cocoa and loved it. Instead of milk though I used my french vanilla flavoured dairy creamer. I also added extra sugar. I tend to like my coffee a little sweeter. All in all pretty good! Read More

Fantastic! I have a little trick for mixing the cocoa with the liquid, as sometimes this can be quite difficult. Mix together the cocoa, sugar, and cinnamon if you add it. Pour in a tiny bit of milk and stir to make a paste. Slowly add the rest of the milk and then the hot coffee. Mmmm! Read More

I thought this was very good...but I did not add the 1 tablespoon as directed I used 1.5 teaspoons instead. Also I think it would be good with vanilla or rum flavoring added! Read More
