It's no secret that coffee and chocolate are a match made in heaven. Each product enhances the unique qualities of the other. That's why coffee is often served together with chocolate in bars and restaurants.
Coffee beans and cocoa beans have a lot in common. For example, both types of bean share many of the same aromas. Roasting is a key stage in the preparation process, as this unlocks the aromas. Naturally, the growing region, soil conditions and climate all have an effect on how a particular bean will taste further down the line.
However, not every type of chocolate is equally well suited to every type of coffee: only complementary aromas in the two products will enhance one another, resulting in the more intense taste experience that comes from enjoying coffee with the right chocolate.
