Dark Velvet Truffle and Signature Mocha Velvet Truffle Selection
From our collaboration with The Highland Chocolatier, enjoy a this selection of Ian Burnett's incredible truffles.
As part of our coffee and truffle pairing series, this Dark Velvet Truffle is matched with our Creole Blend.
Our richest and most popular blend created in the 1950s by Harold Higgins himself, Creole Blend is powerful, rich and very smooth with no acidity and a blackberry finish.
The intense dark São Tomé chocolate and Madagascan vanilla of this complex ganache takes you on a similar journey to the Creole Blend, both with fruity and earthy tones.
The long oak finish of the ganache beautifully matches the dark roast finish of the coffee, adding a smooth and rich body to the smoky intensity without masking the fruity blackcurrant note at the end.
You can join Tony and David Higgins for a full guided tasting on our YouTube Channel.
*Please note that all truffles are hand made to order. Orders for truffles placed by Wednesday each week will be shipped to you on the Friday of the following week.
I am often asked “Mr Higgins, which is your favourite coffee?”
That question takes me all the way back to when I first Joined the company. Then I was the most junior member of staff. Though I had worked in the business before leaving school and for as long as I could remember, I was the new boy, a trainee.
