Just to clear up a few misconceptions concerning the word Mocca. Many people get confused by the many different mocca’s in the coffee world. Mocca Java, has no chocolate in it! Mocca is the port city of Yemen, which grows some pretty stellar coffee and Java is an island in Indonesia.
The popular blend of coffees from these two regions, make up the blend Mocca Java. A Mocha, on the other hand, is a latte made with chocolate, and topped with whip cream. A Mokka pot, is really a German coffee pot. Named after the German housewife who tired of using rags to filter her coffee, designed the Mokka pot, similar to a stovetop espresso.
