For a robust and intense flavour combination, pair Lindt Excellence 70% with a double espresso. The complex profile of this dark chocolate works well with the subtle fruity flavours and notes of brown sugar found in a quality shot of espresso, for an overall balanced flavour and taste sensation on the palate.
Lindt Excellence Sea Salt and Espresso
The fleur de sel crystals running through this dark chocolate give Lindt Excellence Sea Salt a full, round flavour profile. Espresso naturally carries delectable chocolate tones. When paired with our dark chocolate, these bold chocolate tones are elevated to create a truly harmonious and intriguing flavour combination.
Lindt Excellence Dark Caramel and Sea Salt and a Long Black
A strong long black perfectly complements the deep rich caramel notes of Lindt Excellence Dark Caramel and Sea Salt by lending it a slightly smoky taste without being overpowering. Finest sea salt crystals balance this richness, working with the long black to allow the flavour to bloom into an even mix of smoky, sweet and salty.
Lindt Excellence Dark Mint Intense and Filter Coffee
This chocolate pairs perfectly with a mild and balanced pour-over or filter coffee. Gently roasted coffee with an undertone of mint and citrus add depth to the brisk taste of Lindt Excellence Dark Mint Intense. For a more refreshing alternative, serve the coffee iced.
Lindt Excellence Chilli and Americano
For a tasting experience like no other, pair Lindt Excellence Chilli with a strong, dark Americano. Bitter coffee perfectly blends the dominant flavour of chocolate with the delayed surge of mild heat from the chilli for a cooling and cleansing palate. To make the experience even more invigorating, provide a lovely contrast for the palate by pairing with a cold brew coffee.
Mild Coffee Pairings
Lindt Excellence 85% and Flat White
Bring out the roasted notes and underlying hint of vanilla in Lindt Excellence 85% by pairing with a strong flat white. The rich, deep flavour and smooth finish of a flat white lends a rounded mouthfeel that contrasts with this robust chocolate.
Lindt Excellence Orange Intense and Macchiato
For something slightly sweeter, try pairing Lindt Excellence Orange Intense with a macchiato. The zesty taste of candied orange and the distinctive notes of almond in the chocolate harmonise with the notes of roasted coffee and hint of spice in a macchiato – a true feast for the senses.
Lindt Excellence 78% and Cappuccino
The creaminess and full-bodied chocolate flavour of Lindt Excellence 78% pairs best with a lighter, milkier coffee – such as a cappuccino. Hints of caramel and rich notes in the cappuccino balance the cocoa flavour for a harmonious, smooth and sweet taste. For a finishing touch, add a sprinkle of chocolate to your cappuccino. Either way, this pairing is a true delight.
Weak Coffee Pairings
Lindt Excellence 90% and ¾ Latte
Though perhaps not the most obvious choice, our darkest chocolate bar pairs best with a milky latte. The bold flavour of a high cocoa percentage chocolate is balanced by the creamy coffee, for a melt in the mouth feel that enriches and softens the strong cocoa character.
Lindt Excellence 70% and Latte Macchiato
The mild flavours of smooth Lindt Excellence 70% blend seamlessly with the creamy texture of a gentle Latte Macchiato to enhance its underlying notes of vanilla. The result is a mellow and silky texture and warm, sweet flavour.
Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy and Latte
The notes of cream, caramel and honey found in Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy are best paired with a café latte. The delicate flavour of the milky coffee enhances the creaminess for an exceptionally rich and smooth melt and stunning mouthfeel. An exceptionally decadent combination.
