Special Reserve, Las Palomas Coffee
If you love single origin flavor this is the chocolate for you! We joined forces with renowned single origin coffee expert George Howell to create this deliciously smooth and flavorful single origin coffee and cacao bar.
The single origin cacao beans we use for our multiple-award winning Asochivite chocolate were the inspiration for this bar. The bright fruit flavors of these Guatemalan cacao beans led us to pair them with George Howell’s fruity Las Palomas coffee beans from Guatemala, creating an incredibly fruity chocolate. The coffee whisperers at George Howell do a custom brew just for us, and we then soak the Asochivite nibs in the coffee until all of the nuanced flavors of the freshly brewed coffee completely infuse the nibs. We then carefully dry them before adding them to our stone grinders to make chocolate. The addition of our own fresh pressed Asochivite cocoa butter not only makes the bar intensely flavorful and exceptionally smooth, but also ensures true single origin Guatemalan flavor.For more information about our Asochivite beans from the small village of San Juan Chivite, Guatemala please visit our Asochivite page.

There's something very distinctly creamy about your dark chocolates. I break off a piece and let it melt in my mouth...heavenly!! My favorite chocolate. Favorite flavor: Brown Butter!
The best we’ve ever tasted. Love how creamy the chocolate gets when eaten. The maple sugar and coffee flavored bars are outstanding. Bravo!
The Las Palomas coffee bar is not the flavor of coffee and chocolate. The coffee flavor is so subtle that I experienced it as enhancing the flavor of the chocolate with more depth. Knowing there is coffee in the bar I could make out the coffee notes. However if I did not know, I would have just thought the flavor nuances of the chocolate was amazing. The coffee notes are so well integrated it just made a delicious chocolate. This bar is one of my favorites.
My first taste of single origin/bean-to-bar chocolate so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was initially overwhelmed by the bitterness and strong cherry (almost like liqueur or wine) taste and actually thought I disliked it. But, I could not. stop. eating. it. I was trying to save the bar, but polished it off within a day. I tried it with a sip of George Howell’s coffee which was a fun experiment that intensified the fruity sourness of the bar and mellowed the bitter aftertaste. I would highly recommend this for coffee lovers.
This chocolate has great taste and mouthfeel; the coffee is a perfect complement!
