Drinks that feature a combination of espresso and chocolate are typically referred to as mocha-flavored. Sweetness will come from chocolate, while bitterness will come from espresso.
Mocha's flavor varies according to the type of chocolate used, but it is often bitter and aromatic.
It is a tasty drink enjoyed by many. Mocha beans are roasted and ground for several applications, including baking. It's normally made with black roast coffee, but milder roasts work too.
Mochas are a chocolatey treat from Yemen. This coffee is usually sweet and topped with milk, thus they aren't as sweet as mochas.
While black mocha is a popular flavor, what about white mocha? A White Mocha is similar to a regular coffee drink except that it is made with white chocolate rather than milk or dark chocolate.
Mocha is a cappuccino and hot chocolate mix. Similar to a cappuccino, but with a chocolate twist utilizing either chocolate powder, chocolate syrup or melted chocolate.
Espresso beverages are usually shorter and thinner. This coffee-based drink's flavor varies depending on the type of chocolate syrup used in a recipe.
A cup of mocha has around 200 cal (source). It also contains large levels of fat, protein, and carbohydrates, with carbs accounting for 55% of the 200 calorie total. Mocha is not a healthy drink for weight loss, but it is pleasant.
There are also white mochas produced with cream instead of milk, and flavored mochas like raspberry or hazelnut.
