I first started drinking coffee in my last year of high school, simply thanks to being in a class where we could combine with next door and they had a coffee machine. I didn't like coffee at first but began making my own mochaccincos with great regularity but I haven't had any in quite a while so happily made myself a cuppa of Avalanche Mochaccino. I made this first, with just boiling water and nothing added. After I let it cool down a little I gave it a tentative sip and wasn't too sure that I liked it. This initial unsureness proved to be right and I did not like it at all.
I tried some again, this time with a teaspoon of sugar stirred in and found it more tolerable but still not a drink that I could enjoy. I ended up, by my fourth cup, finding that it was most drinkable with one and a half teaspoons stirred into it, which is a shame. My mum had bought herself a box of this drink but ended up handing it to me as she did not enjoy it at all and has declined any offer of this brand of Mochaccino to drink with me. I will drink what I have left but I wish it didn't require the added sugar to make it taste nice. I won't be buying this, just wasn't for me.
I like cocoa and I also like coffee so I thought this combination would work well for me. My first taste affirmed that - it was sweet and flavoursome, and I really enjoyed it. The strong flavours combined to produce a rich, smooth drink that was most welcome after a couple of very cold hours outside on the sports field! I gave out sachets to my testers, assuming that most of them would enjoy it just as much as I had.
It was interesting to discover that only two of the five really liked it. This pair had the same impression as I had, describing it as luxury in a cup and bursting with flavour. The others were less impressed. They thought the flavour was artificial and altogether too strong. I think that, for them, the combined flavours were overwhelming whereas for me and the first two this was a strength. Each of us was entitled to our own opinion however!
Having decided I really liked it, I made a second brew - but then got called away before I could drink it so I put it in the fridge, returning later to find it had gone cold. I thought I would drink it as it was rather than reheating it because I was not sure what reheating would do to the flavour - and this is when I was straight off on a trip down memory lane!
Many years ago, I was working in Majorca where one of the popular bottled drinks was a chocolate concoction known as laccao. I could not get enough of it; it was the perfect summer drink for all occasions. Now, as I took the first sip of my stone-cold mochaccino on a freezing New Zealand winter day, I was momentarily transported back to the Mediterranean. It was a long time since I had tasted that flavour. I am not sure whether or not the original laccao contained coffee as well as chocolate, but the match was close enough for me.
As a matter of interest, I did not get the laccao effect when I drank it hot. In fact I think the flavour was quite different, so it must depend on the temperature you serve it at. Be that as it may, this is a drink I will continue to enjoy both ways, depending on the occasion. I am not sure whether it is good for you in quantity so I might have to ration it however!
