Just as with the Artisan du Chocolat Cafe e Latte this Artisan du Chocolat Espresso Dark Chocolate bar came in a 45.0g size. As you can see the presentation style was also almost identical aside from the darker coloured brown secondary colours and obvious on-pack branding etc. The bar description read that it was made from 'rare Colombian cocoa beans and coffee beans, both from small cooperatives fanatical about the quality of their crops'. It certainly added to my intrigue and only went to heighten my anticipation of giving it a ChocolateMission rating.
Overall the reason I insisted writing this review was because I wanted to ensure it got the total credibility it deserved. This bar was absolutely terrific! Speaking as someone who had tried hundreds, if not thousands of chocolates in the last 5 years this one I wont soon be forgetting and will no doubt be requesting from Artisan again in the not to distant future. The depth of flavour offered by both the dark chocolate and espresso elements was just outstanding and it generated a non-bitter, highly satisfying and enjoyable taste. Could we already have a contender for chocolate of the year for 2014? I don't know about that but its going to take some beating! Very highly recommended!
