**Update, December 12, 2012: Due to popular demand, I’ve added an additional class on Friday, February 10, 2012. Huzzah!
Chocolate and coffee make a great pairing, as any good cafe mocha will demonstrate. But there’s more to it than that—coffee and chocolate begin as tropical fruit, a far cry from the morning beverage or afternoon treat that we think of. They’re both fermented to initiate flavour development, both roasted to develop that flavour, and both have the potential to offer incredible flavour profiles.
What’s more, coffee and chocolate can be as fine as you want, or as crappy and mass-market as you want. Which is why my next round of chocolate-tasting classes will be at Elysian Coffee.
If you’ve taken my classes before, you’re in for a new kind of experience. Here’s the twist: we’ll be doing a blind tasting. It’s an opportunity to find out what you really like, rather than what you think you should like. After the tasting, there will be plenty of time for discussion, questions and stories (and of course, you’ll find out what you tasted).
And for those who haven’t taken a chocolate-tasting class before, this is an excellent way to dive in. If you have taste buds, you’ll do just fine.
