Mocha - or mocker, moaker, and motcha

Apart from Macchiato, the most regularly mispronounced drink on our menu is Mocha.

Apart from Macchiato, the most regularly mispronounced drink on our menu is Mocha. Actually, people also have issues with Shakeroono, but we invented that so we understand.

We cannot claim credit for the invention of the Mocha. The man (well it's unlikely that it was a woman) who brought us the marvellous merging of coffee and chocolate deserves to have stories about him passed down from one generation to the next. These stories will, of course, be utterly fictitious, thus continuing the timeless tradition of, when we're not sure of something's origin, passing off falsehoods and fairy tales as facts with historical merit.

If you imagine a Latte and then add a Yorkie, then you've got yourself a Mocha. It'll look like a Cappuccino, but beneath its uniform exterior will be a decadently-desirable dose of chocolate.

We like to say "Mocker", but we know what you mean when you say "Moaker", "Motcha" or "That one". Rest assured that you'll get a Mocha, so long as it's vaguely distinguishable that that's what you want. A friendly warning: "Moaker" amuses us.
