Mocha is a term that refers to a beverage that combines both chocolate and coffee alternatively referred to as mochaccino, is a chocolate-flavored variation on a caffè latte that is typically served in a glass.
Mocha is a specialty coffee produced from a single coffee bean. It is commonly confused with the flavored beverage known as a mocha, which contains both coffee and chocolate. Mocha coffee beans are made from the Coffee Arabica plant species and were originally farmed exclusively in Mocha, a Yemeni port that was a hub of early coffee trading.
Added to coffee beverages or espresso-based beverages and is a component of the following: Hot Chocolate, Mocha Frappuccino, Double Chocolatey Chip Frappuccino, Java Chip Frappuccino, and Black and White Mocha (a latte made with both mocha and white mocha).
The Mocha beverage is composed of milk (hot or cold), chocolate sauce (referred to as Mocha sauce), espresso shot(s), and whipped cream.
The White Mocha is identical to the Mocha, but we use White Mocha for the Mocha sauce (chocolate) (white chocolate sauce).
Sweetened condensed milk is what it appears and tastes like to me. Because white mocha is served with coffee, it's difficult for customers to tell what it tastes like on its own. However, I find that it tastes essentially like the white chocolate you'd find in a candy bar.
Thus, the decision is literally between chocolate and white chocolate.
