Thursday night's hot chocolate flavor at City Bakery was..... espresso!
Not really sure why they write it in Japanese too.
To me, this flavor was the best that I've had from City Bakery, rivaling the satisfying burnt-marshmallow flavor of the Caramel. There was the perfect amount of rich, almost nutty espresso flavor, and the chocolate actually arrived hot and at the perfect consistency - thick enough to be substantial, but not so thick it sticks in your throat. I don't even like coffee and I sucked it down like I was in the middle of an intense bout with that 2:30 feeling.
