I don't have to go to the coffee shop!
When making a mocha at home with my tassimo I was able to make a "good" mocha using the gevalia espresso and the succhard chocolate syrup. I don't know if this combo is different but it definately tastes better. If I'm craving a mocha at night and don't want to head out to the coffee shop, I make one of these. I hope it gets off backorder soon!!!

As others have mentioned, this is not a latte, just chocolate flavored water and a espresso disc. They should create a chocolate flavored espresso disc (like the caramel) and just used a regular latte disc, until then just make your own with syrup or some melted chocolate chips.

The mocha is awesome!
I love the Mocha! If you like your mochas sweet, you will definitely like this. If you like a stronger coffee flavor you may not like it as much. Mochas are my favorite drink! When I have time I make my own mocha using an espresso disk from the Tassimo and using my own milk and chocolate chips... but when I don't have time for that, I toss in one of these babies and they're great! The only bad part is the cost. Overall, awesome!

Not too fulfilling for the mocha latte lover
The Gevalia Mocha starts off with an intoxicating aroma and strong initial taste. However, after appreciating what you are drinking one may notice the watery aftertaste that is present due to a lack of milk in the recipe (the drink is made from one espresso cup, and one chocolate syrup cup). Hence, I plea that the recipe be made to incorporate milk back into the latte part of the drink. Or better yet, team up with Dunkin Donuts since Starbucks has been severed.
