CHOCO FOR COMMUTERS: Atlanta-based roaster East Pole Coffee Co. announces the release of Commuter: a new single-origin, coffee-infused chocolate bar created in collaboration with Atlanta company, Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate. Crafted with East Pole’s popular single-origin Traffic coffee, organic coconut milk, cacao and organic cane sugar, the bar is a playful nod to Atlanta — the city both companies call home. Commuter has a decidedly dark chocolate bite on the front, transitioning into flavors of malt and brown sugar. Underlying dark berries emerge in the long finish, and the low sweetness of the chocolate allows the balance between coffee and cocoa to shine. The colorful chocolate bar wrapper is designed by Alex and Co. East Pole works with importers to source green coffee, while Xocolatl prides itself on using cacao that is sustainably and ethically grown, harvested, fermented and sun-dried on small farms throughout the Americas and east Africa. Commuter bars will be sold exclusively at East Pole’s brick-and-mortar coffee shop and roastery at Armour Yards (255 Ottley Drive, Suite 105), at Xocolatl’s chocolate micro-factory located inside Atlanta’s nationally renowned food hall Krog Street Market (99 Krog Street, Atlanta, GA) and at XocolatlChocolate.com
