This idea sprung forth out of a desire to replicate the classic experience of serving a lemon with a shot of espresso. From there, it was a simple leap to transform the well-known lemon drop into a more complex creation to facilitate this experience. The proper balance of sour, sweet, and bitter creates a unique experience that takes your taste buds on a journey. The flavors combine and progress, starting with the tartness of lemon, which slowly morphs into a sweet chocolate, before finally resolving into a bitter combination of cocoa and coffee.
