Taste test: This version of Pocky looked a lot different than typical Pocky, as the sticks were quite a bit shorter at about 3-1/2 inches long, and rather than being light in color, they were brown with an even darker brown coating over most of their lengths. We looked up the meaning of "Demitasse" and found that it might mean that there was some coffee mixed in with the chocolate — it means a small coffee cup.
We crunched in to find a fairly typical Pocky texture and a very nice chocolate taste. Our snackers were very impressed by the flavor, but nobody thought that they could taste any coffee in it — just chocolate. And there was no actual coffee listed in the ingredients. So "Demitasse" might have been referring only to the size of the sticks.
