Hot Chocolate, Sahadis, and Gentrification

Read with interest all of the talk of replicating Jacques Torres hot chocolate (in the posts about Tuller)

I'm completely addicted to the MarieBelle mix and can't afford the $22. Have had good luck combining cocoa, sugar, a bit of fine-ground espresso, Guittard chocolate chips ground in the food processor (VERY affordable at Sahadi's, can I even say how much do I love it, and how scared I am that it won't survive or stay cheap with all of the condos going up around it?) and a few pinches of corn starch, cinnamon and ginger. But it's not the real thing. Anyone have a scoop on their recipe?

Anyone want to reassure me about the future of Sahadi's?
