A “Kick Ass” Mocha

Here at the Neal Brothers office we love our coffee! You could call some of us “coffee snobs” as we only drink the best of the best. Sometimes it can be difficult to choose between the 13 varieties we have here but all are organic, fair trade Arabica beans, slow roasted to produce incredible flavour. From dark and full bodied to light and fruity, once you taste Kicking Horse coffee you won’t want to start your day with anything else!

Today we needed a little extra kick in our coffee and what better way than to add some deep fudgy chocolate! To make this mocha we chose our favourite dark roast – Kick Ass, TCHO’s drinking chocolate crumbles and Pacific Food’s sweet and creamy almond milk. This combination will perk you up in just one sip!

mocha ingredients

To start the mocha process we brewed a perfect pot of Kick Ass coffee.

Meanwhile add 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk to a small sauce pot and bring to a low simmer.

Once the milk simmers, whisk in 4 tbsp. of TCHO drinking chocolate crumbles until dissolved.

For a simple finishing touch, grate some fresh nutmeg on top. You could also top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, or stir in some natural date syrup for more decadence!

I paired mine with Gaga’s gluten free shortbread cookies for dipping!
