Very Good+

Cost: $ (need to translate colones to dollars for this one)
Purchased from: Hotel Bougainvillea gift shop in San Jose, Costa Rica

This is another nice rendition of the chocolate-covered coffee bean. I liked these better than some I've tried. I picked up several flavors of Britt chocolates on my recent vacation to Costa Rica. Both coffee and cacao are grown in Costa Rica, so maybe the ingredients are fresher. I enjoyed these coffee bean chocolates with a shot of steamed milk. Good stuff.

Note: My apologies for the low-quality image of the packaging (above right).
I tried to open this wrapper flat to scan it, but the pouch shape did not really want to cooperate with my efforts here.
