These days, when you're in Mexico, hot chocolate is usually, sadly, made with powdered Nestlé crap. The crumbling of pure dark-chocolate bits into a slow melt-and-simmer dance with milk or water is quickly becoming a thing of the past. But not at Viento y Agua (Wind and Air), where the coffee shop's purveyors have taken the old Mexican tradition to new heights with their Mexican Mocha, a sumptuous blend of crumbly Ibarra chocolate (okay, kind of mainstream for Mexican hard chocolate, but better than Nestlé), espresso, a pinch of cinnamon, and a thick, multiple-spoon-dip layer of foam. Take it slow—you won't regret it.

Upon my search for the best Mexican Mocha, I also wondered where I could get the best bottle of water, but apparently not at Viento y Agua since, according to your translation, I could only get a bottle of air instead of water. Information is only helpful when it's accurate, so for the few pople left in OC that still haven't caught on to OC's sister language, Viento y Agua actually means Wind and Water, but it's good to know that there is always Air.
