A caffè mocha.

EtymologyEdit

From Mocha, Yemen, a port on the Red Sea, from Arabic اَلْمُخَا(al-muḵā), due to its being a major marketplace for coffee during Ottoman rule.

The beans often had a chocolaty flavor, hence by extension came to refer to any coffee with a chocolate flavor, or any mixture of coffee and chocolate flavors, notably coffee with chocolate syrup added.
