Drinking chocolate can also be a powder, like Nestle's Quick. It however contains sugar (it might contain powdered milk too I'm not sure because we don't have any in the house) so it is different than cocoa powder. Cocoa powder is powdered cacao beans. It is like Dutch Chocolate.

When you're talking about a cup of coffee that already has cream and sugar, then cocoa powder furnishes only the chocolate flavor.  On the other hand, to enhance to flavor of Nestle's Quick, I add instant coffee powder.  And, because of my medical condition, I drink a lot of Nestle's Quick as a dietary supplement.

BTW, I just checked the ingredient of Nestle's and it does contain both milk whey and soy.

I have a newspaper article that is a few years old that says coffee can help stave off Alzheimer's. That's my defense when questioned about drinking too much coffee. :teehee:

Treated meeself to one of these just before Christmas as they were being sold so cheaply. They do make a decent cup of coffee. Bought a set of refillable filter cups so that I can use whatever coffee I like which. These make for a very cheap cup of coffee as the proper prefilled pods are darn expensive over here.

I'll stick with my $12 Mr. Coffee from Walmart. It makes 12 cups. That way I don't have to keep going back and making a mugs' worth every 10 minutes or so like I do when I'm at my niece's house. Her pod-type single cup brewer costs $350. For what the pods cost to make 3 mugs' worth, I could by two BIG cans of Chock-Full-O-Nuts, a 100 filters, and the d^mned Mr. Coffee maker. ;)

You and me both.
We use 2 - 12 cup Mr. Coffee coffee makers. Mine has the flavored coffees and my husband's has the decaf.

His uses the auto shutoff after 2 hours. Mine is very old and doesn't have bells and whistles. I turn it off anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours then reheat the coffee in the microwave until it is time to brew another
pot in a day or 2.

We went to a dinner at a relative's home. It took forever until everyone was served coffee with dessert. By then my nephew and I were ready for a 2nd cup. (We hesitated to ask for a 2nd cup).  The poor hostess spent all her time running back and forth from the kitchen to the dining room.

Well mine was about $60 but it is really nice and can even brew just one cup if you want: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EI7DPPI/

Although, the cup I use is just a bit too tall for the that section:

I have an Oster.

https://www.amazon.c...er coffee maker

I usually make about 8 cups at a time. The coffee maker uses the typical basket filter.
I used to be real fussy about my coffee blends when I worked in the coffee plant. Today I'll drink anything pretty well as long as it isn't stale. Most middle of the road drip blends are 100% Arabicas anyway. If you want to get a nice custom blend go 60% Colombia/40% Guatamala. That used to be the old Yuban formula back in the 1970s.

I buy my coffee at Trader Joe's and get a dark roast in two different varieties: one from Guatemala and one blend from Nicaragua, Peru and somewhere in Mexico I've never heard of. I mix them in a 3:2 radio before grinding. I'd never use the pods--I use a Mr. Coffee-like drip coffee maker from Cuisinart, mainly because I read an article from a doctor at Harvard's School of Public Health that said that coffee that wasn't filtered through paper filters would boost your LDL cholesterol. Before that I used a cafetiere.

I found some reusable pods for about £1 each and they are easy to use and clean.

An I normally use Taylors Coffee as they do a decent range, different sterengths and flavours. I notice that Waitrose have them at half price at the moment, but my nearest Waitrose is 100 miles away.
