WHAT IT IS: A candy bar that's made from coffee beans instead of cacao (chocolate) beans.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: Wonderful coffee flavor and aroma that’s all natural.
WHY WE LOVE IT: If you love fine coffee and enjoy sweets, you’ll be thrilled with this new way of enjoying great coffee flavor.

Varieties of Caffe Acapella Coffee Candy Bars

Each bar is segmented into 12 bite-sized squares, perfect for sharing or for savoring one square at a time. The four flavors have their individual appeal, much as different coffee drinks appeal to diverse tastes.

Before eating all four flavors at once—it’s tempting—note that the Caffe Acapella bars not only absorb the coffee flavor of the roasted beans used in their manufacture, but also the caffeine content. Each 2.25-ounce bar contains the caffeine equivalent of about two cups of coffee. Will it keep you up at night? They do provide “energy”; we wouldn’t eat them prior to going to sleep.

Cappuccino Connoisseur

Although you won’t be able to savor the foam as you would in a real cappuccino, this bar offers the taste and convenience of a cappuccino on-the-go. Those who enjoy their coffee with milk will also enjoy Cappuccino Connoisseur, the milkiest of the four varieties.

Caramel Macchiato Bar

Gooey caramel makes the Caramel Macchiato Classico bar a hit.


Caramel Macchiato Classico

From the instant you break into this bar, you’ll be pleased—the soft golden caramel seductively oozes out of its creamy coffee-flavored shell, beckoning to be savored on the spot. With this perfect afternoon pick-me-up in hand, you get the comforting flavor of a caramel macchiato, but a perk is that you don’t even have to wait for it to cool down before digging in. This is the sweetest bar, making it the perfect choice for those who would ordinarily go to their favorite coffeehouse for a caramel macchiato rather than a Caffe Americano.

Espresso Serenade

We are tempted to draw a parallel between Espresso Serenade and good-quality bittersweet dark chocolate, for it occurs to us that those who enjoy one will enjoy the other, and vice versa. What attracted us to Espresso Serenade was its bold, rich espresso flavor against a mild, luxurious backdrop of sugar, cocoa butter and milk. Of the four varieties, this is truly the bar that lavishes all its attentions on the espresso beans, much like a lover’s serenade.

Toffee Espresso Concerto

Upon first bite, we understood why Caffe Acapella chose to call this bar a concerto—the soloists are the espresso beans and the English toffee bits scattered throughout the bar, while the creamy texture of the bar itself serves as the supporting orchestra. Most importantly, the toffee bits are perfectly sized, so you won’t run into an unmanageable chunk of toffee in any bite.

Share the gift of a Caffe Acapella coffee bar with your favorite coffee drinkers. Not only will they marvel at the texture and flavor, but they’ll also thank you for introducing them to an entirely novel way of enjoying coffee—no sipping or stirring required. Will it become a habit? No promises!
