||Zingerman’s Next Door, Drink of the Month: Spanish Drinking Chocolate
The Decadent Extreme of Dark Chocolate Drinking
It’s hard to get our hands on this one, so when the opportunity presents itself we jump at it. This is one of the most luscious and rich chocolates ever sipped from a mug. In Spain, they drink this chocolate (instead of coffee!) morning, noon, and night. This is one hot chocolate adults will keep all to themselves!
||Zingerman’s Coffee Co Roaster’s Pick:
Gumutindo is a coffee producing co-op in the eastern region of Uganda. All of Gumutindo’s coffee is processed by its individual farmer members with the result that the farmers retain more of the value of each cherry they pick and process. The co-op provides cupping training for its farmers so they can recognize the different quality issues that arise when coffee is not harvested and processed well. This coffee has a naturally sweet flavor with notes of dark fruit and a hint of toastiness.
||Zingerman’s Bakehouse Cake of the Month:
24 Carrot Cake
We peel and grate forty pounds of carrots to make one batch of this cake. Combine them with toasted walnuts and aromatic spices and you get a great cake that’s totally delicious on its own. Cover it with a generous amount of cream cheese frosting and it becomes irresistible.
