The Aztecs mixed cocoa and chilis together more than 5000 years ago in the heart of their empire in present-day Mexico City. Our Aztec Mocha recipe blends the ancient flavor of chilis with our new cinnamon- and vanilla-tinged Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar for a rich and spicy treat.

12 ounces of brewed coffee
1 tbsp of black onyx chocolate sugar
Cayenne pepper to taste (this is where it gets fun - but start with a pinch and add more as you like. We use about 1/4 tsp for two cups.)
Cream or nut milk (Cashew or oat milk adds the creaminess you want in a mocha if you’re dairy free)
Put it Together
Simply mix your ingredients together while the coffee is hot! Double the recipe and make a batch for friends, or dissolve the sugar and spice in a smidge of hot coffee and add to your cold brew for a chilled treat.
Experiment and enjoy!
Our new Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar has hints of Mexican vanilla beans & Ceylon cinnamon.
