chocolate covered espresso beans
I'm thinking of using chocolate covered espresso beans for my wedding favors. Does anyone know where I can get a relatively large quantity of good ones?
Try calling Pac Gourmet in SF (415) 641 - 8400 . They used to let people order from their catalog..don't know if they still do. They sell 5 lb. bags of those beans. I'd have to look up the price.
Also beware of eating too many of those at one sitting..they will turn your teeth a lovely shade of deep yellow.
The ones at Berkeley Bowl next to the bulk food weighing station are good. I believe they have chocolate and dark chocolate covered espresso beans.
I had some from Charles Chocolates last week. They were the best chocolate-covered espresso beans I've had--the chocolate was not too sweet and the bean was still oily. You might be able to get a discount if you order directly from the factory store in Emeryville.
