This week, the crew over at Raaka Virgin Chocolate in Clinton Hill were nice enough to send me a nice package containing some more of their beautiful dark chocolate coffee bars and a bag of Heartbreaker espresso beans from Café Grumpy.
The coffe bars are the perfect size to pair with a shot of espresso and your favorite book, cherishing that me time. The Blueberry Lavender is compared to a fine Pinot noir with notes of orange blossom. The Chile bar brings a sweet hot swell, with notes of papaya and raisin. The Vanilla Rooibos chocolate, a blend of South African red teas begins with succulent cherry notes and has a toasted marshmallow finish. And the 71% Dark with Sea Salt is a special house blend of ethically traded cocoa beans topped with Himalayan pink salt, with notes of ripe raspberry, clove and citrus. My kind of bar. Thank you Raaka!!
All of their bars can be purchased on Raaka's website as well as locations throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, New York State, the West Coast and Canada.
