This month we’ve chosen to highlight our Coffee chocolate slab. Made from 72% pure, raw organic cacao and sprinkled with cracked coffee beans, this slab is a hit amongst many!

We created these delightful cinnamon and chocolate buns, covered with a coffee glaze and filled with our Honest coffee chocolate ganache.
