This week we are featuring everyone's favorite morning pick me up, coffee!
So where do the coffee beans in the Dark Chocolate Espresso Bites come from? Well, first off, we are coffee snobs and weren’t going to put just any roast into our bars. We tried beans from all of the top US roasters recommended to us but couldn’t get the taste quite right. After all of this testing, we finally came across a roast that was perfect, and it turns out it was right under our nose the whole time.
High Rise Coffee Roasters is only about a mile from our kitchen, which means every time we make a batch of Dark Chocolate Espresso Bites, we pick up freshly roasted beans that day. This means your bars are about as fresh as it gets when you order them, which we believe makes all the difference.
High Rise not only has killer beans, but they have a great story as well. It is a small father/son operation here in Colorado Springs that is quite old school. They don’t do much advertising, don't have a flashy website, have somewhat limited hours and don’t even serve coffee onsite. This means that they spend most of their time perfecting their craft, which is roasting the best beans possible.
So, next time you bite into our Dark Chocolate Espresso bar, realize that coffee crunch didn’t come easily, but is by far the best around.
