The mocha is a beverage that transcends Italian cafe culture and Yemeni coffee history. ‘Mocha’ are coffee beans that had a distinctively chocolatey taste imported from al-Moka, a bustling port city in 17th century Yemen that once reigned as the world’s coffee bean port. The luscious chocolatey flavour of mocha coffee makes it a great ingredient for many desserts and beverages. Love the bittersweet taste of mocha?
