DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS

Dark chocolate covered espresso beans are hand-picked estate Arabica espresso beans smothered in 60% cacao dark chocolate. Crunchy and decadent, this is the ultimate treat for coffee and chocolate lovers alike. Snack on dark chocolate espresso beans out of the bag, or pair them with your next cup of joe.

Origin
We tasted a lot of dark chocolate covered espresso beans in order to identify the best of the best. Sourced from Colombia, which is recognized for producing some of the highest quality coffee in the world, these espresso beans make all the difference in taste.

Unlike the cheaper and more common Robusta coffee beans, Arabica beans have a sweeter profile and more intense coffee aroma. Arabica coffee beans like the ones used in this treat are considered superior to Robusta beans in all aspects.

What are the Ingredients in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Dark chocolate covered espresso beans contain 60% cacao dark chocolate, roasted estate Arabica coffee beans, natural cocoa powder, confectioner’s glaze, and gum arabic (an emulsifier).

How Much Caffeine is in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Every 1/4 cup (about 10 grams) of dark chocolate covered espresso beans contains 60 milligrams of caffeine. For your reference, the average cup of coffee contains about 95 milligrams of caffeine.

Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
1) Antioxidants: Chocolate and espresso give a one-two punch to free radicals with protective antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants in the form of flavonoids, while espresso beans contain polyphenols, which are known to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals.

2) Natural Mood-Lifters: Dark chocolate can increase serotonin and endorphins, your body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals that put you in a good mood. Coffee produces a similar feeling because it stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which triggers the pleasant feelings that come with sipping a cup of coffee.

Recipe Ideas for Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
Aside from snacking on them by the handful, dark chocolate espresso beans make a crunchy addition to trail mix, cookies, baked treats, and even chocolate bark! They are also a lovely decoration for chocolate- and coffee-flavored cakes and cupcakes. Arrange the chocolate covered espresso beans in a ring atop frosted desserts for a touch of elegance. Homemade coffee ice cream is also better with the addition of crunchy chocolate-drenched espresso beans. Try them as a topping on frozen yogurt, too!

A daily bit of dark chocolate has been shown to reduce blood pressure, thanks to antioxidants. Also the caffeine in chocolate acts as a quick pick me up; the serotonin may serve as a mood booster.
