Hot chocolate is way better than coffee. it tastes better, and leaves no acrid after taste in your mouth. it is easier, and cheaper to produce, and is better for you. there is no caffeine, so it won tkeep you up all night, and you can drink it at anytime of the day.
Coffee is a much better choice than hot chocolate. It is more widely consumed therefore it supports a large industry. Coffee also has quite a few benefits such as its caffeine, "caffeine potently blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, leading to a net stimulant effect. Controlled trials show that caffeine improves both mood and brain function". Many people also like the options that come with drinking coffee such as the fact the you can have it black (which contains almost no calories) or with your personal preference of cream and of sugar. You can also have it hot or cold. For these reasons and more I prefer coffee over hot chocolate.
