Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and R,S,T,U Theme Week, featuring chocolate items with origins and flavor inclusions that start with the letters R, S, T and/or U, e.g. toffee.
Today's Organic Coffee Toffee 70% Dark Chocolate (bar) was created by Theo Chocolate (Seattle, WA).
I used to drink coffee. I loved the taste, and especially the aroma. And the aroma of this chocolate evoked that memory. The aroma: ground coffee, cocoa, fruit, and butter, followed by balanced savory/leather, shading into earthy cocoa notes.
The base dark chocolate was smooth. (The source of the cacao was Democratic Republic of Congo and Peru; and the coffee was grown in Peru.)
Bits of sweet toffee and coffee yielded textural contrast and flavor (including ground coffee flavor without ground coffee grit). The rich, gem-like, softly crunchy bits of sweet toffee sparkled against a backdrop of bold, deep dark chocolate with a balanced earthiness. This rich mix of flavors lingered into the finish.
Theo Chocolate's description of this bar: "Coffee perks up your body. Chocolate perks up your soul. There's nothing better than this blend of crunchy toffee, dark chocolate, and rich coffee made with organic ingredients."
