Earlier I posted about my dark chocolate macarons with lemon charcoal to pair with Guatemala Casi Cielo. I wanted to switch things up a little bit and make the lemon the more dominate flavor in the pairing, dipped in dark chocolate.
Meyer lemons are in season right now, so is Casi Cielo. Coincidence? I think not! I love pairing Casi Cielo with meyer lemons over regular lemons because of their sweetness. Meyer lemons don’t have as much of a bite, and using their zest can lend more of a complex floral aspect to the pairing. If you have never done a side by side tasting of meyer lemons verses regular lemons, this is a great activity to help develop vocabulary for coffee tastings….
