Cooking Tips

Use high-quality bittersweet chocolate and fresh, aromatic spices for the best results. Finely grind the coffee beans to release their full flavour into the ganache. When rolling the truffles, lightly dust your hands with cocoa powder to prevent sticking. For a smoother texture, allow the ganache to chill in the fridge until firm before shaping into balls.
