Food pairing is based on the principle that flavours enhance or complement each other if they have common components. Chocolate and coffee are a perfect example of a match that is made in heaven. With the Coffee & Pralines Collection, Neuhaus offers a combination of both pralines and coffee for the perfect break. They selected beans from Colombia and Brazil, two world leaders in the cocoa sector and coffee production. Both the cocoa and coffee beans come from the same region to guarantee a pure and authentic flavour.
Coffee ritual 2.0
The three pralines are eaten one after the other in a specific order from delicate to intense together with a drink of coffee from the same region. To bring out the full depth of the flavours, start with a sip of coffee to pick up the flavour. Then let the first praline slowly melt on the tongue and enjoy the pleasure as the coating melts away followed by the revelation of the filling. Finish the ritual with a sip of coffee so that the flavours blend together in the mouth. Repeat the ritual for the second and third praline. Enjoy!
The Coffee & Pralines Collection is available in two versions. The Experience Box contains 36 pralines and two 100-g packets of Brazil and Colombia single origin coffees – enough for 12 delicious coffee and praline rituals. The Origin Box contains 24 pralines which are just right for eight relaxing coffee and praline rituals.
Both boxes are simple and elegant with a luxury finish. They contain a leaflet that provides full details about the production process and the ideal coffee ritual. The collection is available from October 2018 at The Belgian Chocolate House – perfect to enjoy on those colder, windy first days of fall or even better: a luxury gift for chocolate and coffee lovers to offer under the Christmas tree!
