    As a favorite snack of Seattleites (even those that are currently residing in Seattle) Dilettante Chocolate Covered Marbled Espresso Beans are an original. Nobody knows who originally created the very first chocolate covered coffee bean confection but Dana Davenport, creator of Dilettante's chocolate confections, was one of the pioneers of this craft. Experimenting with panned confections in Dana's shop in Seattle's famous capital hill neighborhood, during the 1970's, Dana created many unique candy sensations. Dana's family had originally brought this candy making method to the Pacific Northwest many years ago introducing the dragee method of confections to the west coast.

    Dilettante uses the same method today, taking premium roasted espresso beans (we roast our own), and generously coating the beans in two types of rich gourmet chocolate. At Dilettante, we coat our coffee beans twice using premium chocolate blends of dark, milk and white chocolate. Using the dragee (pronounced draw-jay) method of candy coating, dragee pans are special revolving kettles used to coat the premium roasted espresso in Dilettante's gourmet chocolate blends. Revolving pans coat the chocolate confections perfectly, resulting in a beautiful chocolate covered bean for a magical mocha inspired treat. Buy gourmet chocolate covered espresso beans as gifts for office parties, gift baskets, stocking stuffers or neighbors. Don't forget to purchase a box for yourself! Marbled Espresso Bean 8 oz gift boxes are an extraordinary treat your friends will all be talking about.

    Dragees are chocolate covered candy made in special revolving kettles. The term dragee is French in origins and describes the method in which we coat our dried fruits, nuts, and espresso beans. Dilettante chocolate covered dragee candies use fruits and nuts. Chocolate covered fruits and nuts are chocolate covered candy free from compound coating and only use the highest quality chocolate. These dragees are the chocolate connoisseur's ultimate snack.

    Here at Dilettante, third-generation Master Chocolatier Dana Taylor Davenport uses master formulas that are selected from the notebooks of Dana's grandfather, Earl Remington Davenport and his great-uncle, Julius Rudolph Franzen, Master Chocolatier and Pastry Chef to the crowned heads of Europe.

    Loved this treat. The chocolate adds just the right sweetness to the coffee bean. I ordered three for gifts and decided to order more for myself.
