Mocha is one of the top coffee varieties in the menus of coffee shops and cafes and restaurants with a wide range of coffee varieties. Mocha is a city in Yemen and the name of a coffee variety grown in this city. It is also the name of a leather made from sheepskin in Africa. Of course, the color of this leather is also brown.
In today's world, mocha is, in the simplest terms, milk coffee with chocolate sauce. This summer, I shared a cold version of dalgona iced mocha recipe. Actually, the most appropriate thing to do would be to share the original mocha recipe first and then a comment of it, but instead of sharing a hot mocha recipe in the middle of the summer, I preferred to change this order. Now it's time to give the mocha its due.
Mocha is made in coffee shops with instant chocolate sauce/syrup. When we do it at home, I think it would be better to use more pure ingredients. One of my main motivations for cooking at home is to use clean ingredients. I prefer this, even though it costs more than the version I'll be buying.
I shared more cold coffee recipes because it was asked more. If I remember correctly, mocha will be my second hot coffee recipe with Turkish coffee with milk recipe. In summer, cold drinks searches increase, and in winter, I think, people usually seek shelter in the warmth of a cup of tea. But I also like to try different hot drinks during winter. In fact, in winter, I consume these hot drinks such as salep and hot chocolate as a dessert as well as a beverage.
That's why, although I normally drink coffee without sugar, I add sugar to both the sauce and the cream, as I think of the mocha recipe as a kind of dessert. It's not too much, but I add just enough to make me feel like I've had a light dessert. But please adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste and preferences for the best result for you.
Of course, cream is not necessary for serving. You can use it if you wish. If you are going to use it, do not forget to leave room for the cream on top of the cup and start squeezing the cream from the edge of the cup.
