At the heart of today's chocolates were roasted Robusta coffee beans, that were coated with dark chocolate and a brown "candy" shell. These Roboostas were made in a peanut-free and gluten-free facility (Thank you to mom-owned company, How Do You Take Your Coffee (based in Reno, NV)).

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate, Figs and Coffee Theme Week. To fulfill the fig part of this rich, fall flavor trifecta, I enjoyed a large mug of dirty chai -- a spicy milk tea with cinnamon, cardamom and other spices, sweetened with homemade honey fig syrup; and I "dirtied" this chai up with a small shot of decaf vanilla coffee.
