[ COFFEE TALK ] Mocha

leave a comment »

A Café mocha is a variant of a cafe latte. Like a latte it is typically one third espresso and two thirds steamed milk, but a portion of chocolate is added, typically in the form of an Italian syrup, although less sophisticated vending systems use instant chocolate powder. Whipped cream, dustings of cocoa and marshmallows may also be added on top for flavour and decoration.

Unlike cappuccini, cafe mochas do not contain the well known milk froth on top, usually whipped cream and a dusting of either cinnamon or cocoa powder.

This being an American invention, it is mostly unknown in Italy and other continental European countries. Mocha was originally a particular variety of coffee from Mocha, Yemen, made without cocoa, but which tasted as if it had cocoa in it, and modern usage usually refers to an imitation of it using other coffee varieties and cocoa.

A variant is white café mocha, instead made with white chocolate. There are also variants of the drink that mix the two syrups.

A term moccaccino is used in some regions of Europe and the Middle East to describe Café Latte with cocoa or chocolate.

[ from Wikipedia ]

MOCHA is:

1. A rich, pungent Arabian coffee.
2. Coffee of high quality.
3. A flavoring made of coffee often mixed with chocolate.
4. A soft, thin, suede-finished glove
leather usually made from sheepskin.
5. Color: A dark olive brown.

Starbucks defines caffÈ mocha as “enough good quality chocolate syrup to cover the bottom of the cup, 1 shot of espresso […] fill with steamed milk […] top with a dollop of whipped cream […] and lightly sprinkle with cocoa powder“.
