Mocha is an unofficial web site for browsing courses at Brown University. It is not supported by the University, though we have worked with various groups at Brown to improve the quality and accuracy of the site.
Mocha was created during the 2005-2006 winter break by a small group of undergraduates in the Brown Computer Science Department. We created Mocha basically because we were tired of BOCA (Brown's old official Online Course Announcement). When Banner came out, we still preferred Mocha, so we updated it to work with Banner. Mocha provides the following features over BOCA and Banner:
Because Mocha is not officially supported by the University, we do not receive course updates from the Registrar. We periodically compare our information with that on Banner, but sometimes we miss things.

Dave Pacheco, Dan Leventhal, Adam Cath, and Dave Hirshberg created the original version and maintain it today. Colin Gordon, Tim O'Donnell, Aaron Myers, and Andres Douglas have all worked on Mocha as well. A huge thanks goes to the CS department for hosting the original version of Mocha.
