Before Mr Bao became a little bit of a coffee snob we use to love going to Jamaica Blue for a coffee. We probably don’t go as often now, not because we don’t like the coffee. It’s more because I am so greedy and always want to try a new cafe and somewhere else :)
Lindt chocolate and Jamaica Blue have recently collaborated to create some new chocolate desserts using their chocolate. Mr Bao and I were invited to try the new desserts, I definitely could not say no to chocolate, dessert and some ice cold coffees. Mr Bao and I went to our local Jamaica Blue at Westfield Shopping centre in Doncaster, right across Big W.
Summer has finally arrived and it was a warm 30 degree day, so I started off with an Iced Coffee. I really enjoyed the intense coffee flavour it had topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream which reminded me a little bit of an affogato.
Mr Bao ordered a cappuccino describing the coffee blend seems to have changed since the last time we had coffee here. It was earthier with richer notes of chocolate and not very fruity. I was also impressed with the latte art love the double heart ~
Dessert time! YAY love seeing so many desserts in front of me and they all have chocolate in them :D Can you feel the grin on my face!
The French croissant bread & butter pudding has Lindt chocolate pieces mixed through and when it’s reheated it melts inside. It’s also served with a vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce. It was a rather comforting dessert and I think would suit colder days. I really liked the addition of the chocolate in the pudding, but would have liked a bit more to give it that extra chocolatey :D
The friendly waitress had told us that the pumpkin loaf was quite popular amongst customers. I didn’t think very much of it, but was actually really impressed. The pumpkin loaf was slightly warmed and very moist and slightly dense, with grated pumpkin and Lindt chocolate chips mixed through it. It had more chocolate than the pudding and was really lovely, I think it’s the perfect for morning tea.
Lastly we tried the Chocolate pots made with Lindt chocolate topped with whipped cream and a square of chocolate. It also came with an edible spoon made out of gingerbread. This dessert used the most chocolate and was best at showcasing the Lindt chocolate. The mousse was so smooth, not too airy like the ones you buy from the shops. How cute is the spoon?!? I’d love to know where and how they made it because I’d love to make it next time I served a pudding or fondant :D
