Someone told me that she doesn't drink coffee. But if she chooses to drink, she would only drink white mocha. It sounds super intriguing to me. Everybody knows mocha, but a white mocha?
Of cos you can just add some good quality white chocolate chips into a serving cup and top it off with some coffee and frothed milk. But I wanna try something different. I tend to look at food or beverage and think of ways to improve it in terms of texture and flavors.
I know, sometimes I am a bit adventurous. But if a dish is perfect, I would very much rather keep its originality. Anyway, cheers!
