Just tried this the other day for no reason other than I wanted dark chocolate and this was the darkest one in the store I happened to be in. I really enjoyed it – it has a very hard snap, nice smooth texture and a really rich chocolate flavor with a very strong coffee note. Is this purposeful on the part of Cafe-Tasse? What I mean is, are all of their bars coffee flavored? I didn’t see coffee or any other flavoring listed on the label. Does anyone know?

That is a natural flavor of the chocolate, so no, Cafe Tasse didn’t deliberately add coffee flavor to it. However, if the flavor did seem a little too intentional, then it certainly is possible that the chocolate may have experienced cross contamination.

I wouldn’t say it seemed intentional, but with the word Cafe in the name, I wasn’t sure. It was quite tasty, cross-contamination or no!

I’d agree that the Extra Noir is consistently roasty. (The line was named, incidentally, for the intention that the chocolate would go well with a cup of coffee…) The thing that I always notice with that bar is the sweetness…a kind of honey flavor that’s unusual for a relatively strong dark bar.
