49th Parallel: where coffee meets chocolate

Posted on July 7th, 2009

A while back, I wrote about Soma Chocolatemaker‘s microbatch bars. A few Vancouver readers mentioned that they would love to try the Dark Science Papua New Guinea bar (tastes like toast!) or the Green Tangerine bar (tastes like, erm, green tangerine).

Well, huzzah! You can get select Soma bars at 49th Parallel in Vancouver. They even had some microbatch bars that I didn’t see in Toronto. They also have a nice selection of Askinosie chocolate bars, which I tasted last month and have been meaning to review. I better get on that, eh?

(They also happen to have some lovely coffee, if you’re into that sort of thing.)

    Our neighbourhood roaster!

    If you’re into some gorgeous chocolate madeleines, Momento Lounge just opened up on West 4th and Macdonald. They do syphoned (a Japanese method of brewing) coffee and teas. They’ve a local dessert maker (not sure who it is) bringing in the treats.

    Yum! They also have syphoned coffee at 49th Parallel. The coffee tastes so different, and the overall experience is fun.
