Compartes Adds Coffee Service to their Chocolate-y Goodness
Brentwood chocolate boutique Compartes sells some amazing cocoa confections, and now they're adding coffee to the works. They tell us that they will "will serve coffee daily along with our handcrafted aritsan chocolates (specials for summer include passionfruit, wild strawberry, lychee and more), handmade sorbets and gelatos and a brand new thick european-stlye hot chocolate drink with a kick (that is served in shot glasses)." Tomorrow you can score a sample from 1-3 p.m. as they serve up a free coffee tasting. On their patio you'll find a team of coffee experts willing and able to answer your questions about their brand new organic coffees.
And don't leave without buying even just one of their delicious chocolates. Earlier this year, Food & Wine magazine named Compartes #4 in their list of the top ten bites of chocolate in the whole country (for their Plantain truffle).
