Coffee + Chocolate x Heaven = Il Morso

Posted on Mon, Aug 31, 2015

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.

What Does French Roast Mean?

Posted on Thu, Jul 02, 2015


French roast is a common coffee term that tends to get used in an inaccurate manner. It is often portrayed as a high quality, sophisticated coffee choice that hails from France making it's way to only the upper echelon of coffee drinkers mugs. The truth is, the real meaning of French roast is quite the opposite. 

  • French roast coffee does not come from France, it is simply inspired by European roasting.
  • French roast coffee is often made from lower quality beans, due to the nature of the roasting a high quality bean is not necessary to produce a great cup of coffee.
  • There is nothing particularly sophisticated about this type of coffee the term refers to nothing other than a degree of roasting.

French roast is a roasting style that takes beans to the brink of burning. They are exposed to high temperatures causing the famous cracking noise. French roast is not done until a second crack is heard, the beans are dark brown and the coffee oils cause a shiny appearance.
