Looking for MY perfect cup of hot chocolate...

I too am looking for my perfect cup of hot chocolate. I don't seem to like the really rich stuff... it makes my tummy funny. As a point of reference, I've tried the hot chocolate at Jin Patisserie and thought that it was just a little too rich and thick for me. I've also tried the hot chocolate/champurrado at El Sazon Oaxaqueno and thought it was too watery and rather flavorless.

I am looking for a cup of hot chocolate that is actually "drinkable" but not flavorless like a powderd cup of Swiss Miss might offer up. It seems like the majority of highly recommended hot chocolates on this board are more on the side of "eat with a spoon" or "fondue." That is not what I am looking for.

What is the consistency of the hot chocolate like at Intemperantia? Is it really thick?
Also, does Compartes in Brentwood make hot chocolate? If so, can anyone describe it?
