Make your own chocolatey latte with espresso or strongly brewed coffee, Mexican chocolate and milk.


  • 2 shots of espresso or 1/3 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Mexican tablet chocolate (such as Abuelita or Ibarra)
  • Optional: 2-3 teaspoons granulated sugar


  1. Brew two shots of espresso or 1/3 cup of strongly brewed coffee. Set aside.
  2. Finely chop two tablespoons of Mexican chocolate (you can also use a cheese grater if you’re not confident with a knife) and add to the coffee. Stir to dissolve.
  3. Add the optional 2-3 teaspoons of sugar if you’d like the latte to be a little sweeter.
  4. Steam one cup of milk with a little foam* and pour over the coffee and chocolate mixture. Add the foam on top and serve.


    *If you do not have a milk steamer, frother, or espresso machine for creating foam, see note above for how to use a glass jar to make milk foam in the microwave.
