Crunchy Chocolate Coffee Bean BarMADE BY COCANU IN PORTLAND, OREGON
Ah, cacao and coffee: brothers from another mother. Dark chocolate, made of wild Criollo cacao from the Bolivian Amazon, blends with fragrant Ethiopian coffee nibs.
The bar consists of nothing more than these sweet brethren, and a bit of sugar – and the resulting confection is nothing short of the stuff of myth. This legend-worthy bar is named after Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers of ancient Rome's origin myth.
Normally we're not in favor of judging a book by its cover – but luckily, these magnificent bars taste as good as they look. Each comes enclosed in a sturdy paper envelope sealed with a wax fleur de lys, and these edible love letters are made all the more poetic by their evocative titles.
Tip of the Tongue
You must know someone who adores both chocolate and ancient Roman mythology – this is the bar for them!
