From our our mutual love of coffee and chocolate, we were drawn together to create something truly special. And through our adventure we have discovered many similarities in our worlds. For example, both the best cocoas and coffees come from the seed of a fruit and are grown 20 degrees from the equator. In both cases beans are left to ferment before being dried, and then roasted. Cocoa then has additional steps to complete the process in order to be turned into chocolate.
Over the next few months we went through the process of pairing different blends of coffee with different chocolates. In the spirit of “faire un canard”, a French expression for dunking sugar cubes into coffee, we came up with delicious dipping shards of 70% Colombian chocolate, incorporated with a light sprinkling of crisp, roasted coffee grains.
