Because mocha and espresso are both hues of brown, it's unsurprising that they're confused. However, they are not.
Mocha is a high-end coffee produced from a special bean. It's frequently confused with the coffee and chocolate flavored drink called a mocha. It has a chocolate flavor. Baristas add a little chocolate to the mocha recipe to boost the chocolate hit.
“Mocha” originally referred to coffee imported from the port city of Al Moka in Yemen, a Yemenite port city that was once a major trading center during the country's coffee boom in the 17th century. Many Arabica coffee beans were grown in the nearby mountains of central Yemen, such as the Moka region. Roasted and then delivered to the dock once they were harvested.
