FLAVOUR FOCUS… AROUND MIDNIGHT ESPRESSO CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly brewed coffee. It consistently appears near the top of surveys and polls of our favourite smells and scents. And here at Booja-Booja we’re lucky enough to enjoy it permeating our chocolate factory every time we make our Around Midnight Espresso Truffles. Our truffles are made with real Mexican coffee, not a ‘coffee flavouring’ or substitute. We brew it up freshly for each batch of truffles we make so that every chocolate is infused with smooth, rich, aromatic joy!

Around Midnight Espresso were among the very first Booja-Booja truffles ever created. Within months of their launch they’d scooped an Organic Food Award, shortly followed by their first Great Taste Award in 2001 and there’s been no stopping them ever since (they now have 15 awards including 5 Great Taste Awards) And is it any wonder? The combination of fine, aromatic Mexican coffee and dark, smooth chocolate from the Dominican Republic is an absolute winner. True to the Booja-Booja spirit, we’ve continually reviewed the recipe and processes behind Around Midnight Espresso to ensure that it’s as delicious and delightful as possible. We’re particularly pleased with some recent improvements in our brewing and filtering processes resulting in our silkiest and smoothest Espresso Truffles ever.

Coffee has been enjoyed for hundreds of years and today, with an estimated 400 billion cups enjoyed every year, it’s one of the world’s most popular drinks. Drinking coffee has long been a very social activity – there were coffee houses in England as far back as in the 17th century – and its popularity shows no signs of waning. There’s been a lot of research into the potential health benefits of the humble coffee bean with claims ranging from protection against type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s disease to lowering the risk of liver cancer, cirrhosis and heart disease. But, all that aside, what most coffee lovers are really interested in is the taste!

Around Midnight Espresso Truffles can be bought in single-flavour boxes as part of our Four Corners Collection. They are also one of our featured flavours at Easter, available in both small and large hand-painted Easter Eggs. You’ll also find Espresso Truffles in our Gourmet Selection, Special Edition Gift Collection Truffle Selection No1 and our Chilled Collection Truffle Selection No1.  So whether you’re looking for a special gift or want a little treat for yourself you’ll find an Around Midnight Espresso box to suit. And if it’s been a while since you’ve tried these sublime truffles it’s probably worth giving them another go, after all they’re now smoother and richer with a more rounded and luxurious flavour than ever.
