Caff Mocha brownies are so very delicious. You might even say they are irresistible. These two flavors have been my favorites for a long time. Especially when I get a blended drink from the local coffee shops. So I was very excited when I came across this brownie recipe.

What is Mocha?Mocha is a quality type of coffee made from a certain coffee bean. It's easily confused with the flavored drink, also called a mocha, which combines coffee and chocolate. Everything Mocha flavored will echo this coffee-chocolate combination, while something mocha-colored will be a similar brown shade.

The Mocha coffee bean is a kind of coffee bean that came from Mocha, Yemen.
