Origin of mocha

  • After Mocha , a town of southwest Yemen

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • 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.

    From Wiktionary

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