A favorite snack of Seattleites, Dilettante Chocolate Covered Marbled Espresso Beans, are an original. Nobody knows who originally created the very first chocolate covered coffee bean confection but Dana Davenport, creator of Dilettante's chocolate confections, certainly was one of the pioneers in the production of chocolate covered espresso beans. During the 1970's, in the original Dilettante candy shop in Seattle's famous capital hill neighborhood, Dana created many unique chocolate candy sensations. Dana's family had originally brought the dragee candy making method (used to coat chocolate espresso beans) to the Pacific Northwest many years ago.
Today, Dilettante's Marbled Espresso Beans are still made using special revolving kettles. We use premium roasted espresso beans, and generously coat the beans twice - in rich gourmet chocolate - using blends of dark, milk and white chocolate. The result is a beautiful chocolate covered coffee bean candy.
Buying these chocolate covered espresso bean treats in our two ounce mini-gift boxes in packs of twelve - is a perfect solution for gift baskets, stocking stuffers or party favors. Don't forget to stash away a box of Marbled Espresso Beans for yourself! Give your party guests each mini-gift boxes of chocolate covered Marbled Espresso Beans from Dilettante and you'll be giving them an extraordinary treat they'll all be talking about.
Dragees are chocolate covered candy made in special revolving kettles. The term dragee is French in origins and describes the method in which we coat our dried fruits, nuts, and espresso beans. Dilettante chocolate covered dragee candies use fruits and nuts. Chocolate covered fruits and nuts are chocolate covered candy free from compound coating and only use the highest quality chocolate. These dragees are the chocolate connoisseur's ultimate snack.
Here at Dilettante, third-generation Master Chocolatier Dana Taylor Davenport uses master formulas that are selected from the notebooks of Dana's grandfather, Earl Remington Davenport and his great-uncle, Julius Rudolph Franzen, Master Chocolatier and Pastry Chef to the crowned heads of Europe.
