Espresso Powder is known as one of the best flavor boosters for chocolate dishes but it's so much more than that! Just a touch of the ingredient will boost your savory or sweet dishes in a way that will open surprise your palate. With a dark and rich flavor it is sure to become a new pantry staple.
We suggest adding a dash to all-purpose flour for baking and for The FareTrade Test Kitchen Team the uses are proving endless! We're digging the depth it adds to sugar cookies and brownies; in yogurt bread with molasses; or even in pasta dough where it pairs remarkably well with bolognese and other long-simmered sauces.

A 2016 Good Food Awards winner and crowd favorite, this balanced blend of all Ritual origins bars is a pure sweet treat. Ritual's goal for the Mid-Mountain Blend was to highlight subtle tasting notes from each bean. Fruity, nutty, earthy, chocolatey, floral- it's all here.
With highlighted notes of strawberry, fudge & graham cracker this chocolate plays well with savory but certainly lends itself to sweet preparations as well. We love making a rich chocolate gelato with folded chunks of chocolate in each scoop; folded into meringues with espresso; or formed into truffles and rolled in matcha powder.
Black Tie Orzo Pasta
Zürsun Heirloom Beans
Crafted By: Lola Weyman
Twin Falls, ID
We love Zürsun Idaho Heirloom because of their dedication to source and grow the finest heirloom varietals available. This approach to offering the best ingredients extends to their new line of grains and pastas. Made from a combination of black squid ink and egg pasta, this Black Tie orzo has a striking appearance and subtle flavor.
Classic Creamy Peanut Butter
Crafted By: Mario Esparza + Andy Mason
Simple. It is what it is. Stone ground, roasted peanuts with a whole lot of love. We love the attention to detail in all of PB Love Co's products and their Classic Creamy is a testament to their dedication and craft. It's perfectly reminiscent of childhood while elevating the treat to adulthood.
PB Love Co's Classic Creamy Peanut Butter is a perfect substitute for all your favorite ways to already use the spread and its consistency is ideal for baking and desserts. Our Test Kitchen team at The FareTrade suggest adding a dollop your morning smoothie to add depth; whisked into a dressing for an Asian-inspired salad; or even on toast with Sriracha and herbs like scallions and cilantro
Sweet Molasses Chips
The Real Dill
Crafted By: Justin Park + Tyler DuBois
With Molasses as the primary sweetener, these are not your run of the mill Bread & Butter pickles. The smooth molasses flavor makes these uniquely, but not completely, sweet. 100% all-natural and made with only fresh cucumbers, vinegar, water, molasses, pure cane sugar, fresh onion, salt and spices from local Denver producer Savory Spice Shop these pickles are a crunchy treat sure to delight your taste buds.
With a subtle richness not often found in pickles, these Sweet Molasses Chips are perfect for topping a Cuban or Reuben sandwich; diced fine and whisked together for a remoulade or tartar that would take fish and chips or crab cakes to the next level; or using the liquid to brine chicken or pork and imbue deep flavor.
