Crafty, small batch start ups hold a very special spot in my heart. I admire an the leap of faith it takes to turn something you love into a career. When that something you love happens to involve coffee, I am all ears. Toss in a little chocolate and I am sold. All of these peeked my interest when I came across Il Morso coffee bars.
Il Morso is a recently launched chocolate company featuring a 100% organic, fair trade product. Oh did I happen to mention that their chocolate is also mixed with amazing bits of espresso? Ya, see why I was so intrigued?
It all started with a trip to Milan, Italy. The founders, Jason Berton and Jordan Schuster thought they were innocently enjoying their morning espresso but, little did they know...their life was about to change. When the espresso arrived at their table, it was accompanied by a lovely piece of dark chocolate. What happened next was the true starting point of this up and coming business...the waiter suggested that they submerge the chocolate in the espresso. Jason and Jordan fell in love with the taste and Il Morso was born.
