Time to use a hit of bitter to wake up your breakfast routine with our Granola Yogurt with Chocolate Espresso Sauce. This coffee-chocolate sauce adds a haunting bitter element to everything it touches from creamy yogurt to pancakes to a bowl of vanilla ice cream. As with wine and vinegar, reducing coffee concentrates its flavor so a little goes a long way.
Dutch-processed cacao (often spelled “cocoa”) has been treated with alkali to tame its natural bitterness. Natural or “raw” cacao still retains its bold flavor personality as well as the health-hiking antioxidants.
