Mocha de Mexico

DifficultyBeginner

Try this tasty drink brought to us by our neighbors and important trading partners to the south. It’s a delicious way to spice a cup of Cafe Campesino Mexico Chiapas into an exotically delicious Cafe Mocha! 

Did you know ships called Manilla Galleons brought the wealth of the 'Spice Islands' in the South Pacific to Mexico? Every year between 1565 and 1815, vast amounts of spices, silks, and other exotic goods were traded for Spanish silver, carried across the width of Mexico from Acapulco to the Yucatan and loaded once again into the ships headed for Spain. This is one reason Mexican chefs are so at home with complex spice blends, like their famous Mole Poblano and fragrant Mexican Chocolate we'll be approximating in this recipe.
