a superior dark coffee made from beans from Arabia






Emily P. Contributor

Mocha has soared in popularity over the past decade, perhaps in correlation with society's growing obsession with coffee.

It's a strong hint at your pup's energy levels, which might just rival those of a double shot espresso. It's also a cheeky reference to the rich, chocolatey coat that many dogs sport.

One thing you probably didn't know is that Mocha is a port city in Yemen, known for its superior coffee beans.

So, if your pup is a rich blend of superior traits, Mocha could be a fitting tribute.

Just imagine the fun of telling people, as well. "Mocha keeps me awake more than my morning coffee!"

this name is basic as fuck. Its in the same league as “lucky” or “coco” or even “brownie”. People just see a brown dog and go “omg mocha would be perfect bc my dog looks like mocha” like thousands of other people hadnt already thought of that shit. Sincerely, fuck mocha.
