I may be unique, but I think chocolate and coffee are the perfect combination. If you haven’t yet tried this magical combination I highly suggest you do! There are a ton of ways to mix coffee and chocolate but a simple one to do is to just add chocolate syrup to your cup of joe. If you don’t have any syrup, you can always try some form of cocoa powder. I’d start light and slowly work your way up as you really don’t need much chocolate to enhance the flavor of your coffee. Alternatively and perhaps easier, you can try putting the cocoa right in with the coffee bean grinds while the coffee is brewing. Thinking about it more, this is probably the best way to go though I’ve yet to try it.
As for the type of chocolate to use, milk chocolate would probably do it for most (especially considering most of us already put cream or milk in) but for me dark chocolate is where it’s at. The flavor is just better though takes some getting used to. Dark chocolate is also quite a bit healthier for you, so that’s a nice added bonus. I think this two go together well because of how comparable they are from the ground up – chocolate beans and coffee beans come from comparable parts of the plant.
If you don’t already own one, I’d suggest getting a Keurig brewer – perhaps something like the K65. Coffee isn’t hard to make, but it becomes a lot easier with one of these machines. They’re not the cheapest so I suggest looking for a Keurig promo code first. Ultimately the K65 is going to probably be your best value if you want to go the single serve route. If you’re one of the few coffee drinkers in your house the idea of a Keurig really starts to make a lot more sense. As an added bonus these machines can do hot chocolate and teas as well – any hot beverage really.
We hope you decide to give coffee and chocolate a try soon and that you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!
