Contrary to most of the other reviewers, I don't think this recipe as written is anything close to Starbucks. However, it is a good starting point. I'd recommend these changes:
1) Use about 1/2 a cup of extra strong coffee, instead of a full cup of regular. Brew with the same amount of grounds, just half as much water. This mimics espresso.
2) Use a lot more milk. Starbucks mochas are mostly milk, with espresso added.
3) Do use the full tablespoon of both chocolate and sugar.
With these changes it came much closer to approximating a Starbucks mocha. I enjoyed it!
