3 t. ground coffee
1 1/4 c. hot water
2 t. unsweetened cocoa
about 2 t. half and half (optionally fat free)
2-3 packets Splenda (or any sweetener you wish)

For the coffee, Kona whole coffee beans are recommended. Grind them yourself for best results.
For the cocoa, use Droste (Holland) or Ibarra (Mexican) from any specialty grocery store.

This is better than Starbucks, and somewhat healthy! I use the French press and let it brew for longer than 5 minutes. I usually do about 7 or 8 minutes (coffee and water). Then I add the cocoa to the mug and pour the coffee in.

Add 1/2 & 1/2 and Splenda to taste. This will be sure to give you a good jolt and it is absolutely DELICIOUS!

Why spend all the money at your local coffee joint when you can make it at home for a fraction of the cost--and it's better tasting!!
