Personally I am a big fan of coffee, whether it is a simple cup made at home or a fancy one ordered from a coffee shop. Most people I know usually tend to opt for a latte or cappuccino and some steer away from coffee altogether and grab a hot chocolate. Mocha is a great drink I discovered not too long ago. The best way to describe it is a hybrid between hot chocolate and coffee. The making of this drink varies from place to place, some use stronger coffee or even espresso, whilst others make it more smooth and chocolaty. It is definitely worth trying, here are some of my observations on the different mocha styles on offer.
Mocha hot coffee drink
The mocha hot drink in Las Iguanas restaurant is my personal favourite, it is a great balance of chocolate and bitter coffee, yet it is not too overwhelming. In most restaurants it also comes with a small individually wrapped crunchy chocolate coated coffee bean.
The Mocha Frappuccino in Starbucks is a blend of coffee, chocolate, milk and ice and is perfect in summer or even a great dessert alternative in any season. This website is the official Frappuccino site set up by Starbucks and it shows different ways you can customise your drink. The mocha cookie crumble option is very rich and lovely.

Mochalatte from M&S
The Mochalatte is a cold drink quite similar to the Frappuccino offered in Starbucks. Do beware as this one is very strong but on the other hand perfect for espresso lovers.

After trying the mocha you might decide to incorporate it in to your hot beverage drinking routine, the Nescafe Double Choca Mocha is a great way to make this chocolate packed coffee at home. For the whole mocha range checkout the product section on the Nescafe website. It is can be purchased in most supermarkets.
