Answer: Yemen 

Mocha, a high quality type of coffee, is made from a specific coffee bean. It is sometimes confused with a flavoured drink also called a mocha, which combines coffee and chocolate. Mocha coffee beans are from the plant species called Coffee arabica. It was originally only grown in Mocha, Yemen, and was named after it. The mocha beans are very small, hard, round with an irregular shape, and olive green to pale yellow in colour. The name 'Mocha' comes from the port of Mocha (al-Makha) that was used to export Yemeni coffee before the 20th century. As of 1911, it was mostly exported via Aden and Hodeida.
