Could there be a more perfect pair than coffee and chocolate? Coffee and donuts would rank right up there near it. So would coffee and biscotti. As you can tell, we’re fairly partial to the classic combinations involving coffee (naturally); but, there’s something about the interaction between the near-perfect balance of sweetness and pleasant bitters in both coffee and chocolate.
Now, that requires starting with top-quality coffees, and then skillfully roasting those fantastic coffees. That also requires premium quality chocolate crafted by a gifted chocolatier. When all elements are present, you are presented with a tasting experience that meets (or exceeds) any wine tasting.
Back on February 21, 2016, we were privileged to take part in a coffee / chocolate pairing event at Streetcar Café RVA in conjunction with the fine folks at Chocolates by Kelly. The response and enthusiasm were overwhelming — so much so that we’ve decided to do it again! Here’s the event flyer with all the pertinent information:
You can also check out all the details and the discussion leading up to the event at the Facebook event page. If you’re anywhere within driving distance of Richmond, we hope you will be able to join us for the evening. Coffee, chocolate, old friends, new friends, learning, experimenting, and expanding your coffee and chocolate palates — it doesn’t get much better than that!
