I can imagine if you are used to that, that is a shame you will have to run out and buy some.

It's a great blend with some of the stronger, darker roasts. I wouldn't put it in Jamaica Blue Mountain, but in some of the Sumatran blends......I'm not talking sweet chocolate, I'm talking about a little bit of bitter dark chocolate. It enhances the nutty coffee flavor wonderfully without overwhelming it!

Funny story: back in Charlottesville one hot summer day, I went into my favorite coffee shop. The woman in front of me ordered an iced mocha. When my turn came, I asked for a mocha latte.

"Do you want that on ice?"

"Ice in one's coffee is an abomination," I declared flatly.

"Yeah." Said Tony quietly. "I hear ya'."

And after a short pause he added, "Some people say the same about chocolate."

PS. I _still_ have not found a replacement for my dead espresso machine, so I don't wanna' hear no griping about being out of chocolate.

I know people who put honey in their coffee. I tried it once or twice, there is something to it

Anyway, coffee is so important to me I finally convinced my wife to start drinking it.

I don't think the two flavors mix, though I do enjoy them separately...

Keep the chocolate and give me caramel. Caramel Latte is my absolute favorite, thinking of it makes me want to go make it right now with my espresso machine. Thanks Tom.
