Café des Chats in the heart of the Paris' Marais district serves as home to a dozen felines who weave in between the tables or curl up on armchairs as customers tuck in.

Manager Margaux Gandelon claims this “purr therapy” produces vibrations which relieve arthritis & rheumatism, lowers blood pressure & heart rate… made all the more necessary after drinking coffee of course.

Across the Rive Seine, Chapon dispenses this pair of bars which operate in a similar push-pull dynamic – one that causes insomniac coffee twitches & the other to purr one back to peace if not sleep.
Appearance   4 / 5

Mexique
from the Stone Age (emphasis on stone)

Madagascar
raunchy, filthy tart
Mouthfeel   14.1 / 15
Texture: the lush life
Melt: timeless
Flavor   43.4 / 50
Mexique
no betrayal of the Aroma… stoned cocoa + those only-from-Mexico cacti FXs (parched, sandy, barren foliage) including a thirst trapping desert citrus

Madagascar
archetype "Red Island" berries subdued substantially / terrifically by cologne-fit scents (vetiver, bay leaf, ylang) while carrying fruits onward -> goes hazelnutty & some backdrop jute too-> marula seeds in the cedar chest
Quality   15.7 / 20
Mexique
Lot No. 140403771
Unforgiving even as it effectively evokes the dry prickly aspects of Mexico's interior & cacáo.

Madagascar
Lot No. 141009771
A big, bold, even buxom Madagascan, doubly so compared to most of the waifs that come off this island. Chapon nicely balances the highs & lows then adds cocoa butter + lecithin to really swell the sensation.
From an origin that grows increasingly tiresome with the S.O.S. (Same-Old-Same), here's a Madagascar bar worth seeking out.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, lecithin
