steam wand. hot chocolate.

steam wand. hot chocolate.

this is the finest way to create a smooth, super rich, velvety and fast hot chocolate. No need to overheat your milk (or plant-based alternative). No need to stir like a fool. 

Ratio between ground chocolate and milk or plant-based alternative is of course to your taste, time of day ;-) and the intensity of our (single origin) ground chocolate. 
Everything between 1:4 - 1:8 deliveries a tasty result. From rich & lush to lighter touched. We like to go for a 1 to 6 ratio for a generally good balanced hot chocolate. 

. chocolate     25g ground chocolate
. milk/mylk     150g (whole) milk or plant-based option 
. ratio             1 part ground chocolate to 6 parts of milk
. temp            steaming cold milk to max 65°C

_ note 01 :  
our rule of thumb is a 1 to 6 ratio but can be customized        
depending on the desired intensity & cup size (large vs a smaller tasting cup)
_ note 02 : simply combine both in a milk pitcher & use the steam wand


. add milk & ground chocolates into your milk pitcher
  (milk or chocolate in first … both ways work just fine)

. start steaming, aerating the milk / plant-based option

. create an angle to start churning so all grounds get saturated

. once the 60°C mark is reached, stop the steaming process

. you will end up with a smooth hot chocolate with a nice foam on top

. you can add some ground chocolate on top or serve with one of our large chocolate buttons for snacking ;-)

You can easily scale the volume by using larger milk pitchers. 
Or adapting the ratio of your preference.
