My take on Mocha
This is how I make my version of 'Mocha'.
1. Start with half the normal amount of coffee in the PF and tamp it down lightly.
2. Add a teaspoon of cacao nibs sprinkled evenly over.
3. Add the other half of the coffee and tamp as usual.
Proceed as normal, but with a 10-second pause in the middle. In other words a 10-second pre-infusion, but slightly later than normal.
It adds 'chocolate notes' without adding the chocolate muddiness that adding cocoa powder does.
Judging by my wife, some people may not notice the addition.
Sounds interesting. I will give it a try. Not that I am drinking Mocha but for friends that come over.
