Chocoffee, that’s how I call my favorite hot chocolate with coffee drink. This actually started when I was still working with Puratos in the Philippines. It’s a breakfast ritual or an afternoon beverage. I’ll just mix a sachet of 3-in-1 instant coffee and then add a few drops of belcolade C501 dark chocolate couverture (it has 56% cocoa mass) or the 71% dark chocolate, and presto I have my chocoffee ( I miss those days)
Belcolade chocolates are hard to come by these days, luckily there are still specialty stores that sells couverture chocolates (Phoon Huat here in Singapore / Chocolate lover in the Philippines sells a range of couverture chocolates). Couverture chocolate are not sold in most supermarkets/hypermarkets here in Singapore nor in the Philippines.
