A Caffè Mocha is a popular espresso beverage served in coffee shops and cafes around the world.

It can also be called a Mocaccino in some coffee shops (and not to be confused with Moka - which is a coffee brewing method using a Moka Pot).

A typical mocha consists of the following ingredients:

  1. One or more shots of espresso.
  2. Cocoa powder/ sugar.
  3. Steamed milk.
  4. Steamed milk froth.
  5. Shaved chocolate or chocolate syrup on top.

Some cafes top their mocaccino with whipped cream, but this isn't a traditional way to make the beverage. 

The above caffeine amount is for a 12 ounce mocha made with 2 shots of espresso and 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

The caffeine and sugar content can vary depending on many factors including the quantity/quality of coffee used, the barista, and the cocoa content of the mocha.

The values for sugar and calories here are from the USDA database for a standard Caffe Mocha

Be sure to ask the barista of your favorite local shop exactly how their mocha is made.
