Being Italian, I consider myself a biscotti expert and I thought these were very good! It was well worth the extra steps of dividing the dough to get a biscotti that is a little special. I know I will make these again!

Being Italian, I make biscotti often. This recipe is the only one I've ever had a problem with. I followed this recipe exactly as written. I scaled it to make 54 servings thinking I'd make 3 logs and ended up with enough dough for only 2. It then made only 20 edible pieces because they were too crumbly after the first baking and fell apart when I cut them. The coffee was indeed extremely strong and bitter. (Even with the chocolate chips added!) I like the idea of this recipe, however I would strongly recommend cutting the coffee in half and possibly cutting down on the first baking time.

The first time I made this recipe, I followed the advice of others and cut the coffee in half. Big mistake - it barely had a coffee taste, and if I'm going to eat something with "mocha" in the title, I want to taste coffee! The second time I made it I used the full amount and found it to be excellent. In the second batch, I also used vanilla instead of almond extract, because in the first batch I made, I found the almond extract to be too competitive with the mocha flavor I was hoping to achieve. Finally, my biggest piece of advice is DO NOT SKIP THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS! In fact, add more and you'll experience a truly wonderful mocha biscotti!

I loved this! You cant go wrong with this recipe. You can make a nice glaze to go over this to make it an extra special treat and if you like more of a chocolate taste only put 1/3 cup sugar and a little more coco in its place.The best biscotti I have ever had.I would not put chocolate chips maybe 1/3 cup but a cup is to much.I still love this recipe Thanks so much!

I took the advise of others when making this, which is why I am giving it 4 stars. If I made it as the recipe reads I would have scored it lower. I cut the coffee measurement in 1/2. Even in doing that they have a strong flavor. If you like dark chocolate you will love them. I was afraid they would be to strong so I drizzled the melted semi sweet chocolate and when that was cool also drizzled melted milk chocolate on top. I will maybe make again but am still looking for a great mocha biscotti or coffee flavored biscotti.

They're great for dunking in tea! I didn't likle them as well plain, though. Perhaps if I had used the chocolate coating. BTW, to the reviewer who complained about how small they are, they're the same size home-made biscotti always come out. Only restaurants make them huge (Why? I don't know.)

Found this Biscotti just fair in my opinion and would not make it again. Will try another recipe for a chocolate flavor.

This made tiny little biscotti. Maybe I didn't do it right, but next time (if there is a next time) I won't divide the dough. Nothing too special, and a waste of almonds.
