I read here and here that cocoa powder could be "brewed" like coffee for a cocoa-flavored coffee-like hot drink. Today I bought some cocoa powder and a reusable coffee filter cup, and I tried it out myself with a single-cup coffee maker. I got a drink that seems quite promising, but it brewed very weak and watery. How can I get a stronger cocoa powder brew?
You don't brew cocoa like coffee, with filtering. You drink the cocoa powder together with the liquid.
Making breed cocoa is super easy, just take a small pot, mix gradually the cocoa powder with cold water, them let it cook up like Turkish coffee. Then drink without any sieving or filtering. You can add sugar if you like.
If it is still watery, add more cocoa powder next time.
Oddly enough A friend of ours sent us a bag of cocoa designed specifically for just that kind of thing. I was surprised at how good it was, and supposedly the way cocoa was consumed in Central and South America before it was ground into power and sweetened to give us Chocolate.
I have no financial interest or know anyone in the company, I'm just a satisfied customer.
