Caribou Coffee, Denver Airport

The Marmaduke family stopped off at Denver Airport on its way between Los Angeles and Washington. Caribou Coffee seemed serious about its hot chocolate. Its advertising claims that it his raised the bar for hot chocolate. It makes its drink from gourmet Guittard chocolate.

The hot chocolate cost US$3.10 (plua tax) and came in a paper cup with a cardboard wrap-around to protect the finger tips. It was provided with a thin espresso froth and its taste was very dark. Merkel added sugar which is almost unheard of for him. This was a good rich hot chocolate. Merkel would have preferred a more creamy texture and of course a ceramic cup would have made the drinking experience better.
