An espresso drink with chocolate added is known as a mocha. If you take the chocolate out of the drink, it becomes a latte. In order to make a delicious mocha, strong coffee from a coffee machine, such as a Nespresso or a Keurig, is used, as well as chocolate syrup to finish the drink.
Preparing the ingredients the same way baristas do, such as by making espresso-style coffee and steaming or frothing the milk, will result in a homemade mocha that tastes just as good as the ones served in cafes.
Prepare the whipped cream for the topping. Using a handheld milk frother, combine the sugar, salt, and heavy cream until light and fluffy. It should only take a few seconds for it to become nice and fluffy.
Milk should be frothed, either heat it to a simmer on the stovetop (be careful not to bring the milk to a boil as this can cause it to burn) or microwave it for 30 seconds. Pour the heated milk Into a French press, cover with the lid, and move the plunger up and down, making sure to keep the lid firmly in place. Alternatively, you can use an electric milk frother to simultaneously heat and froth milk.
If you have an espresso machine, froth the milk with the steam wand to make it more appealing. Milk that has been frothed or steamed is texturized with tiny air bubbles, which makes the drink a little sweeter and creamier than milk that has simply been heated.
Frothed milk, chocolate syrup, and hot coffee are combined to make a hot cup of joe. Finish with a dollop of whipped cream, drizzle chocolate syrup over the top of the whipped cream to finish it off.

OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
In 2010, we started getting enquiries on restaurant marketing and we start to help food and beverage brands with their marketing. Below are campaigns and events that we have done over the years:

Check out this restaurant marketing guide to learn more about the many campaigns and companies we have worked with.
Since then, we have also created many marketing workshops and classes for the F&B industry. Many of these modules are still running in tertiary institutions such as Temasek Polytechnic Skillsfuture Academy and also ITE College East COC classes, below are some snippets of our lectures and workshops:
