Doesn't sound like such a bad combination.

I like coffee (obviously) and I like chocolate but I much prefer them separately

I'm getting notes of chocolate in the cup :D Last time I tried eating beans they were a bit crunchy really.

They are crunchy, but with the chocolate they're quite enjoyable. There are many recipes for making your own, btw. I think you'll find some in the archives here. I've made them using Lindt dark chocolate and they're yummy. The beans should be darkly roasted, but not oily as they tend to get rancid too quickly if oil has come out of them.

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

How easy is it to get them coated thinly Bruce, given their shape?
