By definition, Mocha is chocolate mixed with coffee. However,
baristas as Starbucks insist on calling their chocolate syrup, which
has no coffee, "Mocha". Why is this? It's very confusing because I
HATE the taste of coffee and would hate to have any mixed with my hot
chocolate. I called Starbucks Customer Service and they gave some
lame "it's a Marketing Decision" response. Any else know why this is?
