    Cafe' Mocha

    I am a huge fan of Cafe' Mochas and Biancas. What is a good brand of syrup for these drinks? I LOVED Hershey's Special Dark syrup when it was out, but I can't find it anywhere now. So, other than Hershey's and Nestle's chocolate syrup, what's the best chocolate syrup for mochas? For biancas, I like the Torano (sp?) syrups. I don't like Divenchi (sp?) that you can buy in the grocery stores!

    Ghiradelli...makes a kick ass chocolate...I have used Velrona chocolate in compition before..but it runs around $25 a block...and you have to hand shave it. Monin syrups in my opinion are the best for syrups....but I have never found a chocolate syrup that I have liked..monin, torani or 1886...non of their chocolates where impressive to me...but that is just me.

    Thanks! I have looked on their site and don't see Ghiradelli chocolate syrup. Can you buy it in any store? I've never tried Monin syrups, where can I find them?

    We use Ghirardelli chocolate powder and add it to the milk before steaming/foaming the milk. It blends really, really well and doesn't tend to leave much of that chocolate residue that you find at the bottom of drinks made with chocolate syrup.

    The best mocha I've ever had was in Jitters (Las Vegas). They used a powdered chocolate and not a syrup. This chocolate was mixed with a plain syrup (Torani?) and the espresso, and then the milk was added.

    I have not found another mocha I like, even here in the cornfields of Illinois. (Amazing though that may sound.) As soon as my Conti machine gets here, I'm going to see if I can remake it. While I never worked there, I watched them make it for me about a zillion times and I believe it was the same chocolate mentioned above (not attempting spelling.)

    Chocolate syrup

    I live on Cafe Mochas. Because I like them so much, I had to resort to the nonfat no-whip versions to keep from turning into Jabba the mocha drinker. When I bought my Starbucks Barista machine (great machine by the way), I started with Hershey's regular and dark syrup but just wasn't happy with the taste of the choclate. I have since been using Smucker's choclate topping, which comes in a glass jar and has to be spooned out, and that's been OK. I would think that Ghiradelli's syrup would be superior to everything based on the quality of their other chocolates.

    I haven't tried the Ghiradelli syrup yet, but just ordered it from the following web site:
    http://kmb-enterprises.com/

    They have regular, dark and white chocolate and also sell the pumps to pump it out. I'll let you know how it works.

    We use Ghirardelli dark and white(we use the white sauce as well as the powder). Our customers love it-some insist of the sauce and some on the powder.

    Hot Coffee & Ghiradelli Powder Chocolate



    For Topher:

    You may be just the coffee chef I'm looking for. I want to use an electric drip to make coffee & to somehow blend into it powdered chocolate so that the chocolate successfully dissolves. I have asked Phil at Coffee Chat & apparently the q. struck him dumb. Ghiradelli has nothing re: this on its web site. Can you help? I am not trying to make iced coffee, at least!
