Chocolat Alprose – Swiss Premium Chocolate – Special Edition: Latte Macchiato (Switzerland)

Okay, here we go - another bar from Switzerland!

This bar lead to a long conversation about the meaning of the phrase ‘Late Macchiato’, and it turns out it means literally ‘milk stain’. It is so called as the milk is stained in the preparation of the drink by half a shot of espresso.

This chocolate, although it is not clear on the picture, does have a different coloured lighter centre, so lives up to its name! The chocolate is sweet and delicate, the creamy centre has a gentle milky coffee flavour and the bar just melts in the mouth.
