For about the last year, I’ve been adding cocoa powder to my coffee. Only every now and then, for a treat. Instead of adding the cocoa to the hot coffee in my cup, I add it to the grounds. The result is a subtle chocolatey cup of coffee.
Here are the steps I follow:
1. Choose a yummy cocoa powder. I use this delicious dark cocoa powder that my brother and his wife sent from Switzerland. It turns out I’m not a big fan of dark hot chocolate but love it in coffee.
2. For 4 cups of coffee, I use 1-2 tablespoons of powder.
3. Cover all of the cocoa with the coffee grounds. The powder tends to foam and froth in the boiling water, so you might have an overflowing filter if you don’t cover it all up.
4. Brew coffee and enjoy!
(5. Of course, I add creamer. Vanilla and chocolate taste delicious!)
