Dark Chocolate Covered Seeds

Dark Chocolate Covered Seeds

Beans from: Nicaragua
Tasting notes: crunch, earthy

Many Garagistas swear by these dark chocolate covered seeds: two seeds are part of their daily (or breakfast) ritual. It would be near impossible to find a more delicious and healthy chocolate than this individually wrapped, peeled, whole cocoa seed, covered in a 70% dark chocolate.
