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 in these Howcast videos.
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. I'm going to show you how to make an Iced Mocha. What you will need for this is some chocolate. I like something that's not too sweet, a good high quality, maybe single origin cocoa. I'd put a little bit of hot water in there to make it a syrup. Next, just some cold milk and then a good shot of espresso. So I'm going to get that espresso ready. Alright, so as that shot was pulling, I added the milk to the chocolate and I'm just stirring it together. Now this right here is just chocolate milk. So once we add the espresso that is what makes it a mocha. Stir that up some more, and then just add the ice. Give it a little stir, and that is an Iced Mocha. A favorite drink of many baristas over the summer, though they probably won't tell you that.
