During summers this is a kind of drink I really relish, absolutely chilled cocoa coffee. Brilliant flavor. I made it the other day along with green papaya salad. Neither too strong nor mild, the smooth balance of coffee-chocolate taste and aroma with an addictive flavor made my palate crave for more. Simply irresistible, perfect summer drink.
