Single Origin Drinking Chocolate
Our European style drinking chocolate, made from single origin Dominican Republic Zorzal cacao, is rich, creamy and silky smooth. The organic, direct-trade beans for this bar come from Dr. Charles Kerchner's 1,019 acre bird sanctuary in the mountainous Reserva Zorzal, where the beans are grown, dried and fermented with meticulous attention to detail. The chocolate is a bold explosion of fruity sweetness with a well rounded finish.
Directions: Heat 1/2 cup of milk in a saucepan until steaming. Add 1/4 cup of drinking chocolate and whisk until completely dissolved and frothy. Pour into a cup and enjoy. This can also be made with nondairy milk. Use cream for an intensely decadent experience.

Like many businesses do, Crow & Moss began in a basement. One day, driving home from work, owner Mike Davies was overcome by the desire to learn how to make craft chocolate. It was a sudden and all encompassing feeling, a life changing moment -- and one he knew he couldn't ignore. Over the next few months, he put together his initial set up (a small coffee roaster, a Champion juicer for cracking and pre-refining, a Diamond melanger, a small tempering machine and a neon pink hair dryer for winnowing that he stole from his wife) and got to work. It was a rabbit hole he never crawled back out of (his wife has since had to get a new hair dryer). Now, Crow & Moss is making artisan chocolate in one hundred pound batches in our 2000 square foot factory in Petoskey, trying to bring out unique and true-to-bean flavor experiences to share with chocolate lovers through the midwest.
