Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.
Today's Espresso filled chocolate was created by Chef Shekoh Moossavi at Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
Aroma and flavor notes for this thimble-shaped, domed confection included coffee latte, light caramel and smooth dark chocolate notes. The dark chocolate had very faint tart green notes (oxalis, wood sorrel) and true chocolate/mocha notes.
Today's filled chocolate had well-executed, relatively subtle, well-balanced, layered flavors. This creamy, sweet dark espresso chocolate will likely appeal to dark and milk chocolate lovers.
Maker's description: Espresso beans infused with Valrhona dark chocolate ganache.
