It smelled like I'd opened a fresh can of coffee when I unsealed this tin of Mocha Roca from Brown and Haley. The foil wrapped pieces of Mocha Roca inside contained buttercrunch toffee centers that were embedded with bits of ground coffee and covered in chocolate and cashew bits. A winning combination of flavors overall. Like many chocolates that incorporate ground coffee beans to impart real coffee smell, taste and texture, the trade-off was having to chew on a few coffee grounds at the end. A small price to pay really.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.
