I know you love coffee…if you didn’t you wouldn’t be here. But who doesn’t love chocolate and coffee. That’s kind of a no-brainer. The beautiful thing about chocolate coffee too is that you can add things to it to make it even better.
Having chocolate coffee is like drinking luxury in a mug.
What You Need
Of course, in order to make coffee of any sort, you need beans. You can choose regular coffee or one that is already chocolate flavored.
This coffee has a medium body with a subtle yet decadent flavor of dark chocolate with cinnamon and vanilla hints. If you love chocolate, you are going to love this bean. I promise!
You can add cocoa powder to your coffee a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until the flavor you are seeking is achieved.
You can add vanilla (just a splash), cinnamon, or any kind of milk (coconut, dairy, or almond).

How to Make It
After your beans are brewed up, you can add your chocolate pieces and let them melt. Also, this is when you would add your cocoa powder or cacao nibs. Stir until it’s blended and add milk (if desired).
Don’t get crazy
If you have never had chocolate coffee before, you will want to start small. Don’t go dumping chocolate in or it might not taste good.
Add in small amounts and taste as you go.
If you aren’t really a coffee fan or you don’t want a bunch of caffeine, try brewing this organic blend made from cacao nibs.
Coffee Free Cacao Nibs Brew
If you want to try a recipe that is free from coffee, you need to try this. It has zero caffeine!
How to Make it:
Preheat the oven to 350°F and put the nibs on a baking sheet in a thin layer. Cook for 15-18 minutes then remove and cool. (Store in an airtight container when not using) For the coffee, take 1 tablespoon of the nibs for each cup of boiling water. Grind the nibs until it’s a powder and then “brew” in a french press like you would coffee beans. Let it steep for 6-8 minutes. Pour it in your cup and drink up. You can add the coconut oil or cinnamon to your mug, then stir (if desired).
