Do you love mocha but feel like it’s too hard to make? Or you need special equipment? What if I told you that you can make mocha at home, using tools you already have?
Mocha is one of my all time, favorite espresso drinks!
And once upon a time (before I had 2 kids), I made mocha by grinding gourmet espresso beans and brewing it in a moka pot. But now, as a busy and sleep deprived mom, I ain’t got no time for that!
So I came up with this super simple recipe that you can almost make in your sleep! And it uses common ingredients and needs no special tools.
Because we all know what waking up in the morning is like… you’re barely awake, much less barely alive (before coffee), stumbling into the kitchen, Walking Dead-style!
