Caffè mocha, also known as mocaccino, is an American variant of a caffè latte. It is a coffee beverage based on espresso and steamed milk which contains chocolate. Typically sweetened cocoa powder is added, but some variations contain chocolate syrup, dark or milk chocolate. Sometimes caffè mocha is referred to as hot chocolate with espresso added.
Caffè mocha can be served either with steamed-milk foam or whipped cream on top. Sometimes it is dusted with cocoa powder or cinnamon and topped with mini marshmallows.
This beverage was so named after the town of Mocha in Yemen which is famous for having been the major coffee marketplace for about 300 years. The Mocha coffee bean has a distinct flavor and a notably chocolate taste. Hence the term “mocha” was extended to mean any coffee with chocolate taste.
