Pull 2 shots of Klatch House Espresso into container. Cut 1 inch wide strip of lemon peel and twist over espresso to release oils. Steep the lemon peel in the still hot espresso for several seconds. Then add 1 oz of chocolate powder and 1/3 tsp of cardamom to container and mix until completely dissolved. Finally, add 6 oz of half & half into container and stir.
