"I would use black too, and I didn't think either about using sugar. But maybe I should test both, or at least be very clear about the fact that I don't use any sugar."

"Hi Lowe, I'll ask the guy, which is a roaster. He doesn't work at a café. I'll see what he knows (or doesn't know) about all these methods, maybe he knows a lot anyways. What I explained to Giovanni is that the first thing…"

"Giovanni, You make a good point about people using sugar in their coffee.  (Thank you google translate.)  I was assuming that all of the coffee would be black because that is the only way to get the true coffee flavor.  But many…"

"Karine, Is your coffee person just a roaster or a barista at a cafe?  You need to partner with someone who knows about coffee.  You should ask your coffee partner about pour overs or French Press (not to mention Clever Coffee dripper or…"

"Ciao Karine Interessante quesito. Ho sempre ritenuto la degustazione cioccolato/caffè più uno scontro che un abbinamento,  entrambi molto complessi e ricchi di aromi che tendono l'un l'altro a sovrapporsi. Amo sia il…"

"Hi Lowe, Thank you for the tip, but why is a French press coffee or pour over better than espresso for a tasting? I know chocolate, but I'm new to the coffee world, and these are the things I want to know and understand for a tasting. I want to…"

"The Simonelli website says that it makes Espresso machines.  Are you really going to use espresso for these pairings?  I hope not. If I do a coffee and chocolate pairing, the coffee will be made by pour over or French press.  "

Hi Karine

Many thanks for your request .... we are just re-evaluating our plans now, and whilst we will probably still visit the Dominican Republic, we are planning on visiting the Yucatan Peninsula on our way .... so we're a bit unsure about our itinerary ... but yes, if it happens we are in the Dominican Republic at the same time, it would be great to catch up and possibly make some visits together.  Will be in touch soon .... we are just trying to get through Easter in our chocolate store!
