Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.

Today's Kyoto Style Cold Brew Coffee Dark Chocolate (bar) was manufactured for World Market* by Astor Chocolate Corp. (Lakewood, NJ). 

Kyoto style refers to a cold brew style coffee also known as cold drip coffee.

Aroma notes for this bar included: dark roast coffee (and cacao), dark chocolate, and faint vanilla.

The well-tempered broke with a snap in a cool room (67 degrees F. (18.3 degrees C.)). The smooth dark chocolate was embedded with tiny bits of ground, roasted coffee beans and cacao nibs (pieces of cacao bean), that contributed a mild grittiness

The flavors were well balanced and smooth and were well integrated (uniform). The individual roasted notes of chocolate and coffee were difficult to identify and distinguish (between each other).

Ingredients: Dark chocolate (chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavor), cocoa nibs, ground roasted coffee beans

Allergen-related information: Contains soy. May contain milk, wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts.

*Formerly Cost Plus World Market.
