Bite of the Week: Theo Chocolate Coffee and Cream

Just like the perfect mocha, Theo’s Coffee and Cream bar is sweet and milky with a caffeine kick.  With help from Ben Affleck and the Eastern Congo Initiative, this bar was created to further change in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a nation rich in natural resources yet impacted by conflict.  Each bar is comprised of cacao, coffee, and vanilla sourced entirely from eastern Congo.  The coffee is provided by Caffe Vita, a local Seattle roaster that goes one step beyond fair trade by partnering directly with farmers who are committed to sustainable practices.  


That’s a lot of good stuff packed into one bar and the taste certainly doesn’t disappoint.  The milk chocolate is creamy without being cloyingly sweet.  The coffee is ground to just the right size to add flavor without any unwanted grittiness before it is blended in.  If you’re thinking about buying this bar, you should know that the first one tends to disappear quicker than you would think.  Go ahead and get two—because it’s for a good cause, right?
