Guess it depends on whether the customer is asking for a Mocha (blended
drink) or Mocha (cup of coffee).
If it is the former, I see a lot of people enjoying those slushy coffee
drinks. I have yet to find the coffee bar that has become so elitist
(and willing to forgo the profit) that they will sell only coffee
drinks that meet their perception of what customers should have. If
someone (me included) want's to enjoy a cold slushy espresso based
drink on a hot summer day, why not???
If it is the latter they are asking for either a cuppa mocha (the house
roast) or Mocha Java if that is what the barista has brewed.
