The two homegrown brands are offering their first online introductory craft chocolate and coffee pairing and tasting event to the public in September.

Auro Chocolate

The collaborative event will be hosted by both Auro and Yardstick as they take guests on a 90-minute journey of the origins, history, and processes behind their high-quality coffee and bean-to-bar chocolate.

Stories behind each coffee blend, bean, and limited edition chocolate bar will be shared, as well as the similarities between coffee and chocolate and how best to pair certain kinds together using a variety of factors.

Guests will be able to try and taste the chocolates and coffee discussed by the instructors in real-time. The limited-edition pairing class also encourages guests to share their thoughts on the scents, notes, and flavors of each chocolate bar and coffee blend.
