Oh! TCHO! Just like Blue Bottle Coffee, you are ruining me for all the others; you are killing me quite nicely. I received your shipment of “Nutty” today. At once, all other chocolates lapse from my mind as mere impostors — and that is a tall order.
Let me try to repeat what happened with me when I uncorked “Nutty” today:
- (tears open unobtrusive brown paper wrapper,) MMM, smells good
- (places square in mouth,) Smooth texture; calm silky chocolate (at first!)
- (chews chocolate,) Wow — powerful flavor. Nutty? I don’t taste nutty. I taste — wait a minute! — An onslaught of coffee (is that Blue Bottle?) — strikes my tongue, fills my head, removes all traces of worry or care in the world — In The World!
- (swallows,) Kazaam — I Must Always Eat This Chocolate
- (thoughts of peanut butter well up briefly but are overcome by aroma of coffee,) I will have more — but I must wait, briefly, to assimilate this experience —
- (lingers…,) Ahh, I taste this chocolate for a loooong time after chewing and swallowing. This is a reallllly long finish.
- (after the finish…,) Nutty — oh, Nutty? Ahh — yes, maybe — minutes later! I Still Taste the Chocolate — is that a Nutty aftertaste? aha. aha… more, please.
and i TOTALLY forgot to mention the most important thing about TCHO: it’s “WEB 2.0” chocolate! seriously perpetual-beta, this is chocolate YOU can influence.
we just got a whole pile of the three current flavors, nutty, chocolatey, and fruity, and plan to do a side-by-side soon. more to come…
