Caffè mocha is based on espresso and hot milk, but with added chocolate flavouring and sweetener, typically in the form of cocoa powder and sugar, like a caffè latte. Instead of using chocolate syrup, many varieties may contain dark chocolate or milk chocolate. Caffè mocha can also be called hot chocolate with (e.g., a shot of) espresso in its most basic formulation.

Caffè mochas, like cappuccino, typically contain the distinctive milk froth on top, although they are sometimes served with whipped cream instead, as is common with hot chocolate. They are usually topped with either cinnamon or cocoa powder dusting, and for flavor and decoration, marshmallows can also be added to the top.White caffè mocha is a variant made of white chocolate instead of milk or dark.

There are also drink variants mixing the two syrups ; several names refer to this mixture, including black and white mocha, marble mocha, tan mocha, tuxedo mocha, and zebra.

Another variant is a mochaccino with either a combination of steamed milk and cocoa powder or chocolate milk, which is an espresso shot (double). Chocolate syrup, whipped cream and toppings such as cinnamon, nutmeg or chocolate sprinkles can be added to both mochaccinos and caffè mocha.

Using a coffee base instead of espresso is a third variant on the caffè mocha. Coffee, steamed milk, and added chocolate would then be the combination. This is the same as a cup of hot chocolate mixed coffee. This variation’s caffeine content would then be equivalent to the coffee selection included.
