Rejavanation! We’ve been asked many times for a coffee and chocolate box, and we’ve put together a delicious combination of espresso and cocoa flavors to stimulate your senses, and keep you woke!
Here’s what’s in it. Over a pound of Sumatra beans (Mountain City Roasters) to brew a pot of smooth coffee. Chocolate dusted espresso beans from French Broad Chocolate, Munki Nuts Espresso Yourself Walnuts, a bar of Espresso Chocolate from Black Mountain Chocolate, and just for good measure a crunchy Chocolate Chip Biscotti from Dolci di Maria. All products are gluten-free. We can substitute Nature’s Kandy Chocolate Energy Snack Balls for the the biscotti for a vegan and gluten-free choice.
We named this box Pritchard Park to acknowledge the vibrant triangle of green space that has long been a busy hub in the commercial area of downtown Asheville. It was the location of Asheville’s original post office, built in 1892. The three-story building was razed in 1932 to make way for the park named in honor of Jeter C. Pritchard who served as United States senator and as a senior member of the United States circuit court of appeals. He was recognized as one of Asheville’s outstanding leaders and citizens, who was deeply interested in the “progress and welfare of this community, ” and “…had led in civic movements for the uplifting and betterment of the city of Asheville.”
We think coffee and chocolate is just the right tip of the hat to acknowledge Mr. Pritchard’s newly revamped park and Asheville’s lively street scene, and it will keep your feet dancing to the beat of Friday night drum circles (which we feel sure Mr Pritchard never imagined).
The Pritchard Park Coffee & Chocolate is on sale through April 15th, for those late nights of preparing your taxes!
