Let's Mocha Love!
Boardwalk Beans wants to share the love this Valentine's Day with a Limited Edition blend of our locally roasted, organic coffee with our favorite locally roasted, organic cacao nibs!
Coffee and cacao are a perfect marriage, one that epitomizes the meaning of true bliss:
1. In taste, coffee and cacao are complementary. Boardwalk Beans has added over 2 oz. of freshly roasted, organic and fair trade Tanzania ground cacao nibs to each bag of coffee! This rich cocoa has a creamy mouthfeel with lemony brightness and hints of apple and dates that combine with our blend of naturally sweet, chocolaty, Central and South American coffees. It's so good, we think you can drink it without milks or sweeteners!
2. They get your blood flowing and put you in the mood! Coffee and cacao are great for lifting energy and mood by boosting the brain's neurotransmitters.*
3. Both coffee and cacao are packed with minerals and antioxidants (protection against damage from free radicals), especially polyphenols, which studies have shown can help boost the immune system and fight-off diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Disease.*
4. You're helping share the love for small, artisan businesses!
5. Out of all the chocolate in the United States, there are only 150 bean-to-bar chocolate makers. That means that these chocolatiers make chocolate by roasting raw cacao (cocoa seeds) and turning them into delicious chocolate. We're fortunate to be able to take advantage of a local treasure, MADE, New Jersey's only true bean-to-bar chocolate. We hope you'll stop in to visit Deb and Mark Pellegrino at MADE, where you can pick up a bag!
Treat yourself AND our coffee makes a great gift! We'll personalize your bags if you let us know who it's for at check out ❣️
