Today's two high-end ($100/lb.) petite -- but precisely made and decorated -- dark chocolate square gems from Nuubia Chocolat (Pleasanton, CA) included the company's dark truffle with espresso whiskey flavored ganache, and a Honey truffle. The espresso truffle did have some dark, rich coffee and very faint sweet whiskey-like notes that I liked. The honey truffle was a very nice blend with natural honey and other complex notes (some almost nut-like) all the way through to the finish.
I enjoyed these chocolates with dried figs that I had marinated in coconut palm sugar, coffee and dark rum.
Today was Day #5 of Chocolate, Figs and Coffee Theme Week.
