A Mokk-a Kind of Christmas

A real Dutch Santa!

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

The smell of fresh coffee from Mokk-a, of course.


The presents are ready, the tree is ablaze

Now what to do for Santa as he sails through the maze?


A nice Café Svenska to warm his cold toes

Then maybe an Italia to sooth his Christmas Woes.

And follow with France just to finish the mood.

Santa will love you before his morning snooze!


Green pine trees, cold mountains, warm atmospheres. 

Mokk-a’s Café Svenska gives Santa good cheer!


Excellent style, vibrant passion, warm sunny days.

Add Café Italia to all holidays!


And then there is France, an amazing country it is.

Beautiful landscapes, amazing kitchens, famous artists…that’s it!


So think Mokk-a for Christmas and Thanksgiving whims!

The perfect collection for family and friends!!

Cafe Au Lait Pudding

Here is another nice one for the holidays!!  Makes enough for 2-3 people.

  • 1 package of Jell-O® brand vanilla instant pudding (2.5 oz.)
  • 1 package of Jell-O® brand chocolate instant pudding (2.5 oz.)
  • 3 ½ cups of milk.
  • 1 cup of drip coffee, chilled. Try Mokk-a’s Cafe Italia for this one!! 
  • Whipped cream in a can for garnish.
  • Three bowls, and serving dishes for the pudding
  • Directions:

    Follow the directions on the package for preparing the vanilla pudding: add 2 cups of cold milk and pudding mix in a bowl and whisk for two minutes.

    In a separate bowl, prepare the chocolate pudding. The directions call for 2 cups of milk. Instead, put in 1½ cups of milk and ½ cup of chilled coffee and pudding mix in a bowl and whisk for two minutes.

    Transfer about 4 tablespoons of the vanilla and 4 tablespoons of the chocolate pudding to a third bowl. Add 2 more tablespoons of coffee to this batch. Whisk this batch. It should appear a few shades lighter than the chocolate pudding’s color. Drink the remainder of the coffee!


    Layer in cups or parfait glasses. Refrigerate for five minutes. Garnish with whipped cream before serving.
