Review: Dagoba Xocolatl Hot Chocolate

Dagoba Xocolatl:
Overall: ****1/2

My current favorite hot chocolate, this one is simply superb. Granted that the taste of chocolate is subdued by the spiciness of the chilies. However, the overall effect is wonderful, with the first and last impressions being that of the chilies, while during the main part of the experience, you can feel the cacao base under the punch of the chilies. The cinnamon is there mainly as the ghost of a presence, and adds only moderately to the taste. The drink tastes only slightly creamy, and is certainly meant only for people who can stand spiciness.

Recipe used: According to instructions: 3 tablespoons of the mix with one cup of milk.
