this is the finest way to create a smooth, super rich, velvety hot chocolate with latte art. No need to overheat your milk (or plant-based alternative). No need to stir like a fool.
The final intensity of this drinking chocolate will of course be defined by the size of the final cup when adding your steamed milk or plant-based alternative.
. chocolate 25g ground chocolate
. hot water 36g of water, of the boil
. milk/mylk depending on drink style, desired intensity, cup size
. ratio 1:1.4 for the chocolate shot
. temp heating cold milk to max 65°C
_ note 01 : this can be used to create a latté or cortado styled drink
_ note 02 : chocolate shot can be prepared using the steam wand (gentle) or by just stirring both together
. add ground chocolates & hot water into your milk pitcher
stir to combine & gently open the steam wand to homogenize the shot
. pour the shot in a small cup or glass for a cortado-styled drink
or in a mug for a chocolate shot latté finish
. steam your milk and finish the cup/mug with latté art working the
chocolate as if it were an espresso shot
