Drink of the Day: Hot Chocolate @Cafe Medici

Somewhere between Bing Crosby’s White Christmas and the frosty morning air I found myself inspired to forgo the usual cup of Jo for something a little extra special on a recent coffee run. Instead of doubling up on shots of espresso, I listened to my inner child and ordered a hot chocolate from Café Medici. Considering most the hot chocolates I’ve consumed were of the instant variety, this was quite a treat on several levels. While Café Medici’s baristas are known for doling out seriously brilliant espresso, it was pleasantly surprising to find they approached a simple hot chocolate just as earnestly. Frothy milk (or in my case, soy) is blended with a chocolate base with just the right amount of sweetness. It was a delicious, nostalgic treat perfect for a cold winter day.
