Whether you're a coffee connoisseur or you don't know beans, barista Mike Jones shows you how to brew a better cup of java.
My name is Mike Jones, and I'm a barista at Third Rail Coffee right by Washington Square Park in New York City. I'm going to teach you some basic coffee-making skills. Alright I'm gonna show you how to make a Cafe Mocha. Now all this is, is basically a latte or cappuccino with chocolate in it. So you start off with a high quality cocoa. Something that's not too sweet is nice, but just a little bit of sugar so that the cocoa flavor mixes well with the espresso. In a cafe environment we would take a lot of this cocoa powder and mix it with hot water and have syrup pre-made. But as far as making one drink its easy to just start off with the powder and add a little bit of hot water in there. And then stir it up to make a syrup. Then I'm actually gonna pull the espresso directly over the chocolate, stir it again and then pour just as if with a cappuccino or a latte. So I'm gonna get the shot ready, and the milk and then we'll pour. Alright, so we pulled the shot right over the chocolate and we;re just gonna incorporate that together. And then again, our into the same as with a latte. And we'll do a nice Tulip on this one. Alright, that's a Cafe Mocha.
