- Facts on Mocha:
Café mocha is a variant of a café latte, inspired by the Turin Coffee beverage Bicerin. The term “cafe mocha” is neither used in France nor in Italy. It is based on espresso and hot milk, but with added chocolate, usually in the form of sweet cocoa powder, or in some varieties they use chocolate syrup. Mochas can contain milk or dark chocolate.
Mocha is also described as a type of coffee bean. These beans that is smaller and rounder that most of other kinds are derived from the coffee species Coffee Arabica, which is native to Ethiopia and Yemen. “Mocha coffee” can refer either to the coffee-with-chocolate drink, or to coffee brewed with mocha beans, which were originally nurtured in Yemen and distributed through the port of Mocha.
To make a mocha start with one or two shots of espresso or double-strength coffee, and mix it with cocoa powder or syrup in the bottom of the glass. Gently add steamed milk into the glass, and stir to combine. Mocha drinks are usually topped with whipped cream or milk foam, and some sprinkles chocolate syrup, coffee grounds, or coconut flakes to decorate it.
Latte versus Mocha
Coffee is one of the latest trend sin beverages today. Two of the most likeable treats are the latte and mocha coffee variations.
For those who are not fond of coffee that much it is hard to identify which is latte and which is mocha because of their identical nature. Both are mere sub variations of café espresso. Both make use at least 30-33% espresso and the rest are made of steamed milk.
The major difference in mocha and latte is the addition of a key ingredient for café mocha which is the chocolate. This is why mocha, as a term means chocolate coffee or coffee and chocolate. Latte on the other hand does not include chocolate to its mixture.
To understand latte and mocha, you need to know about Espresso coffee.
Espresso: Espresso is a concentrated coffee drink that is prepared by making pressurized hot liquid (water) into finely grounded coffee beans. Espresso is the base for latte and mocha.
Latte: Café Latte is made by adding Espresso, small dollop of milk foam (or froth) and a lot of milk.
Mocha: Café Mocha is made by adding Espresso, milk, chocolate syrup (or powder) and whipped cream.
