Mealtime Monday: Mochaccino

It was just one of those days, where breakfast is a a quick piece of fresh bread with butter and jam in the hostel kitchen, and lunch is whatever you find as you’re wandering around the city at 2:00 pm and your stomach starts to grumble.  In this case, lunch was a single chocolate truffle and a mochaccino that took almost half an hour for the barista to concoct.  We weren’t sure if she’d gone to the back of the ChocoMuseo Barranco location and roasted us some cacao beans fresh, or if the milk had to be freshly squeezed out of a Peruvian cow, but this was, without a doubt, the longest I’d ever waited for a cup of milky-sweet, chocolate-caffeine goodness.  I ended up buying a souvenir bottle of pisco with cacao and coffee bean granules floating inside (still unopened, unsurprisingly) and a bar of dark chocolate with pieces of crushed coffee beans (long since consumed) while I waited; perhaps that was all part of the plan.
