There’s a fabulous Toronto based (all vegan) baking company called Sweets From The Earth – perhaps you’re familiar with their tantalizingly sweet, delectably rich morsels? Fortunate to have access to their tempting wares, I recently happened upon a new flavour of cheesecake, espresso, which I readily snapped up at Toronto’s all-vegan (!) grocery store, Panacea. Having thoroughly enjoyed SFTE’s other cheesecakes (chocolate, vanilla bean, and wild blueberry) on occasion, I was confident that this new java-powered flavour would not disappoint.
And it did not.
After presenting this for tea I barely had a chance to grab the camera to prove it existed before all that remained were espresso-infused chocolate cookie crumbs. Creamy and light-textured with a definite, yet not overpowering, espresso hit, this cheesecake is delicious. SFTE’s wild blueberry flavour remains my unwavering favourite (it’s just amazing) but this one is super tasty too – and if you’re as much of a coffee aficionado as I am, this is for you. Added bonus – the espresso cheesecake is gluten-free and uses fair trade coffee beans. Score.
